Get Up, Stand Up: Preparing For Your First Oral Argument
1:30 PM EST
People assume lawyers are born with the gift of public speaking, a flair for the dramatic, and are somehow naturally calm, cool, collected and prepared for any curve ball that may come their way. But, for many of us, just getting through that first oral argument without drowning in a pool of sweat is a big win. Winning the argument? Well that’s the icing on the cake. Join us for a roll-up your sleeves discussion on preparing for your first (or second or third) oral argument. What to do? Where to start? How to practice? Where to sit in the courtroom (admit it, we’ve all been there)? So come prepared with questions, suggestions and anecdotes and we'll have some fun.
