    • Moot Court Auditions - Matt Tsun will share the top five tips to get on moot court.  Again, this discussion is not about the technicalities, but about the substance: what are judges looking for?  What makes an outstanding oralist?  How can I prepare?  (Read between the lines = the good info!).   Q and A to follow.
    • AALSA Elections - pre-election information
