I mentioned back on Sunday that I participated in NCCU Law‘s annual Mary Wright 1L Closing Argument competition. The videos were posted online today, so I downloaded a copy and threw it on YouTube to share with y’all
The student workers who did the recording apparently took a coffee break around the 4min mark — the camera just keeps on panning into the wall, so for the last minute you’ll just have to listen to my voice. Hopefully you can still figure out the theme to the closing
That whole experience showed me how weird it is to watch yourself after giving a speech. At the time I thought I was talking incredibly fast — I finished with 35+ seconds left, even though every time I’d practice I’d only have 3-5 seconds left — but watching it after the fact it doesn’t seem that bad.
If you want to check out the fact pattern for the case, download “People v. Andrew Madison” from this URL at streetlaw.org.
Anyhow, hope y’all enjoy I’m off to study for CivPro then to prepare for this weekend’s UNCASG meeting. Have a great night!
