Do you like Arguing? Acting? Law? Being Right? Are you a 1L interested in Mock Trial? Today the Mock Trial Board is hosting our first Mock Trial Skills Session! Professor Diane Reeves will discuss how to deliver effective Opening and Closing statements and offer her advice on how to succeed as a trial-level oral advocate. You will also be introduced to Mock Trial here at Duke Law. We will also go over the process for gaining admission to the Mock Trial board, the various mock trial opportunities available throughout the year, Duke's own Mock Trial Tournament, and briefly answer questions. Don't worry, food will be provided. No previous Mock Trial experience is required. For more information, please contact Jenn Lin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
