Humble Pie


Last night I was booted out of the internal mooting competition. Suffice to say that I am now eating humble pie. After thinking that I was the shit after my external moot perhaps it was a good thing, I hadn't prepared as vigorously as I had hoped and I came over nervous. Bit disappointing really after my lecturer and mooting couch came to view me and I didn't win.

Perhaps it was the lack of sleep, and numerous amounts of red bull. Nerves so I am told can effect ones practice at the Bar, getting nervous in a magistrate's court when you weren't nervous in the Court of Appeal the week before.

A humbling experience really, and I'm glad that the other two went through, there was one really good mooter who stood out and I was told that it was between me and the second girl.

Currently I am relieved that its over! I don't think I could have possibly managed preparing for a semi-final moot competition, the third round of the OUP, the LAC and 4 subjects.. but I am disappointed that I didn't get any further, I would have loved to go to the final and face a 3 Court of Appeal Judge bench!!

Ah well...

You got to the Quarter Finals and that is an achievement in itself.

Yeah, bad luck Lost. Still, you've done well to get this far and I'm sure you'll prosper from the experience.

Mooting is a bit stressful ,Lost, but all around its a worthwhile Experience; you've already ramped up your skills for the BVC by a goodly ammount just by taking part!

Sorry to see you didnt win this time, but I still think you've done really well!:)
