Yeah, mock trial seems better. (But I'm a 0L so what do I know.) Assuming you want a trial-level position, of course.
There seems to be such a diverse opinion on this on TLS (as well as other sources), that I wonder if it's not more about how you spin it. By the end of 3L, I'll have mock trial, moot court, a year long clinic, and two prosecution-specific internships, assuming I don't do any externships during 3L. So far, I've simply tied the experience I have to the positions I've applied to with a lot of success.
What do you think TLSers? Thoughts? Does it matter so much what
the experience is as opposed to what you do with it
