I'm participating in the 1L appellate ad competition this week. It's rough! My partner and I won the oral element last night, but ended up losing over all as our opponents wrote a higher-scoring brief. Oh well.

Congratulations on your good oral advocacy scores and good luck tonight!
Hang in there -- it's all about developing new skills. Well, everyone prefers winning, too, but that's just a part of the picture. -- Mary
