Attorney Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina judged the Internal Moot Court Competition for Charleston School of Law in Charleston, SC
Charleston, SC, United States., March 2, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -
Attorney Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina judged the Internal Moot Court Competition for Charleston School of Law in Charleston, SC on Saturday September 21st 2014. The internal moot court event is a part of a process to help the school pick members for its Moot Court team to compete in competitions that the school hosts and travels to. The event is judged by local attorneys and law professors at the law school and involves two teams of two law students arguing against each other. The judges then score each student participant on factors such as knowledge of the case, body language, courtroom presence, likeability, and many other factors to come up with a winner for each round. The students prepare a brief for the competition that contains the arguments they will make, but during the oral argument portion of the competition they could be on either side of the argument and not necessarily on the side they were on for their brief.
The attorney and professor judges give each of the participants’ helpful feedback on their arguments after the completion of each round to help them in the future. The students with the top scores move on to the next round and the members of the school’s moot court team are selected from the best participants in the competition.
This was the second year in a row that Attorney Evan Guthrie has judged the Charleston School of Law Internal Moot Court Competition. Mr. Guthrie enjoyed being able to give back to the local legal community and help enrich the legal learning process for local law students. Attorney Guthrie was happy to have a different perspective on the law process by being a judge and listening to the oral arguments. Mr. Guthrie looks forward to helping judge future Moot Court competitions at Charleston Law.
