What are people's experiences in moot court during law school? Does having moot court on your resume actually help get jobs in any way?


it doesn't help you get a job as much as drinking, that's for sure. 1000 point resume booster.

Excellent. But seriously, I imagine it does with the importance of social networking. So the TLS advice is less moot court more liver destruction?

This has to be flame. There is no way somebody would think rock climbing, their shitty cover band, or surfing are more important than moot court.

You didn't think we were a shitty cover band after you threw your underwear on stage last month after our rendition of Lola.

FOCUS: Is moot court worth the time commitment?

Please a straight answer...

LR is about a thousand times better than moot court.

If nothing else, then yes, moot court is important for your resume

I'm confused by your post OP. Are you saying you are a 1L considering moot court for 2L, or are you saying you are a 0L considering moot court as a 1L? Some schools will let a 1L be a timekeeper, but not actually participate.
