Nervous about the 1L Moot Court Competition this weekend?

Once the research and writing is done, you’ll need to turn your attention to the actual moot court experience.  What do I wear?  How do I address the judges?  If it’s 100 degrees in the courtroom and the judge says it’s OK to remove my jacket, should I leave it on instead? All this information and more is discussed in the podcast a Guide to Oral Argument, available on the Law Library podcast site.  Although this lecture, by Australian barrister and solicitor Christopher Kee, is geared towards international moot competitions, it is relevant for anyone preparing for a moot competition.  Mr. Kee includes basic public speaking tips as well–how to dress, how to address the court, and how to conduct yourself in general.
