At the January OCBA Appellate Law Section meeting, our distinguished panel on oral argument -- 4/3 Justice Richard Fybel, 9th Circuit career law clerk Paula Mitchell, and Snell & Wilmer partner M.C. Sungaila -- suggested that lawyers prepare for their own oral arguments by watching others.
You'll have the chance to see the 9th Circuit hold oral argument at the University of San Diego Law School on Feb. 6, 2012. Judges Margaret McKeown, Milan Smith, and Rudi Brewster will hear three cases. More info here. Thanks to Ben Shatz.
