Fist Year Oral Argument Practice Rounds

ATTENTION 1LS!

As you are well aware, First Year Oral Arguments are right around the corner (March 28th).  We know this event can be stressful for those who have never made an argument in front of judges in a courtroom. Because of this, the Moot Court Board has set up practice times during the week leading up to the event. This is a great opportunity to get comfortable arguing in a courtroom setting in front of student judges and receive helpful feedback from those who have been through it before. 

Practice round signups will be posted outside the Moot Court Board office beginning Monday, March 9th.  The deadline to sign up is 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 13th

Students signing up will need to select which side they will be arguing (appellee or appellant). Students may, but are not required, to sign up with a partner arguing the opposite side. If a student finds that no time slot fits his or her schedule, please email Kevin Boswell at kevin.boswell@louisville.edu, and we will make attempt to make accommodations. 

 

Best of luck to all those preparing their briefs!
