You’re about to take the hot seat in front of a panel of judges. Are you ready? Are you sure?

Call Lawfinders today and leave nothing to doubt. Our appellate experts can help you thoroughly prepare for your oral argument and maximize your presentation. We can help you master the record and relevant cases by developing answers to the toughest questions your panel could ask.

We can provide you research on any and all recent developments in the case law and organize the relevant cases in easy-access notebooks.

We also can help you prepare an affirmative presentation by developing an outline of your argument. In our experience, outlines are superior to speeches, as you are likely to be interrupted several times during your argument. An outline ensures you make all your important points, while simultaneously giving you the freedom to answer questions from your panel.
