Videos for oral argument preparation

These videos may be helpful to both professors and students as many classes prepare for oral arguments this spring. In this short clip, Chief Justice Roberts talks about oral argument, emphasizing how to handle questions from the bench. This longer video shows a student's winning argument at a Washington and Lee moot court competition. And many legal writing professors have used this short video, in which comedian (and former teacher) Taylor Mali mimics a speaker whose verbal tic is phrasing statements as questions.
