Chapter Summary

The life of a law student is busy and complex and often the last thing students want to undertake is another time consuming and stressful obligation in the form of a moot court competition. Moot competitions provide a student with an opportunity to delve deep into a subject matter of interest. Students should select competitions based on subject matter interest. Knowledge is the basis of confidence and confidence results in powerful and persuasive pleadings. They must evaluate their current knowledge and skills, determine how much time they can and are willing to commit and examine whether the amount of time dedicated will enable them to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their desired goals. This chapter also discusses the several skills that students need to evaluate their ability to deliver a confident and persuasive argument. You get out of a moot competition what you put in.
