The national and regional moot competitions across Canada have wrapped up, giving students a chance to relax their newly acquired reflex to practise speech gestures in front of reflective surfaces and understanding friends and family. While everyone is taking a well-deserved breather — or gearing up to make grand arm sweeps in front of an international crowd — 4Students has tallied up the results of the various competitions.

Reputation is a key component in all legal careers. With the world becoming increasingly virtual, lawyers have to become ever more aware of the impact and potential consequences of their “virtual” reputations.

The art of the moot

Written by
The beginning of the year is not a particularly pleasant time for most Canadians. It means back to work, blizzards, and no official holidays. For many 1L students, there is another reason to dread it — moots. The moot is usually students’ first oral presentation in front of their peers (unless you count drunken karaoke). It is nerve-wracking, to say the least. Fears of stammering, turning beet red, and worse, bursting into tears, run rampant.

Law students are notorious for being stereotyped as library hermits. If you delve deeper, however, you will find a group of passionate people who do get involved, both at school and in their communities. Whether its recreational floor hockey, the local food bank, student governance, or a combination of other activities, there is often a lot more to law students than meets the eye.

André Bacchus counsels students to start planning their careers ASAP.
With the job market the way it is today, law students are advised to start planning their careers earlier than ever before. What used to be the articling-position rush, has now become the second-year summer position rush. What used to be considered a summer to relax between first and second year, has turned into an opportunity during which many are trying to distinguish themselves from their peers.
