You don't like public speaking but want to be a litigator? That's interesting...
the best advice i can give is the same thing one of my professors told the class on the first day: "don't like speaking in front of people? Get over it." you'll get plenty of practice in your first year, and if you want to be a litigator you're going to need it.At the very least, you're going to have to answer your prof's questions while the rest of your class listens. We also do alot of oral advocacy at my school, if yours is anything like it, at some point in your first year you'll be performing oral arguments in front of a panel of judges. never in front of crowds, though. The easiest way to get over it, is to realize that it's not a big deal, even if you think you sound stupid. most people do, when asked to answer without preparing a speech. go to class prepared, but understand that your teacher will likely ask you questions that can't be answered by looking it up in your book or notes, and also it's better to pause and think about it for a second than to be halfway through an answer, and realize you don't want to go that direction. don't throw your money away on a class for this.
For people who do not like public speaking (like myself) yet still want to get into litigation and are nervous about the whole speaking in front of crowds (like myself)- do you recommend a course like ToastMaster's or something along those lines?Thanks all!
