The article originally appeared in the Nevada Law Journal and was based on a talk that Dean Cunningham gave at a symposium organized by UNLV.  LWI’s Monograph Series reprints foundational articles on subjects that are important to the teaching and study of professional legal communication. Each volume focuses on a specific topic relevant to legal communication, and Volume 6 of the series will focus on moot court and oral advocacy. Dean Cunningham’s article, which draws upon principles from an area of psychotherapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, articulates ways that professors can help law students overcome their fear, anxiety, or nervousness about moot court or oral argument.
