All students should be prepared to argue the motion; no passes accepted for this assignment.
I'm not sure if that sounds awesome or terrible, lol
Well it's only 2 people out of 60 so the odds are you won't have to go. It is somewhat terrifying to stand at the podium while he grills you in front of the class but if you want to do litigation and/or can convince yourself that it's good practice and doesn't count for anything
, it could be a good experience. It's really nothing to worry about though and I'm not sure whether any of the other CivPro professors did something similar or not.
For some reason, I feel that will be my saving grace in law school. No matter how stressful the year (minus exams) is, it doesn't matter. If you look like a complete fool in class and kick ass at the end of the year, you still kick ass. (for some reason, my calm does not extend to the fact that I won't necessarily kick ass, cognitive dissonance FTW)
