Comments

Thanks! I'm a high school student preparing a mock trial and your article has really helped me shape my opening statement
Nice website BTW

Erin

i'm also preparing for a mock trial. this was very helpful for me in so many ways. i was so confused when i found out i had to deliver the opening argument. so thanks a bunch.

JW

I am also a mock trial student preparing my opening statements and your article has been more help than my team.

Thanks for the tips - I do mock trial, and am currently presenting a case against Maeda (greek lit.) in english. This was really helpful

amanda

i think the tips are helpful, but need to be explained a little more. I recently was a bailiff for mock trial in my school, and i heard the attorneys give the judges their opening statement. I think the statements they gave were okay, but could be better, and i think that going to this site would give very little to no advice to them. Please take his into consideration: Explain. Also, you may want to give an example of a good opening statement. Tell the beginnning of what should be a good statement, and regardless of the other comments which only tell the good things about your tips, i am honestly giving the truth. Thank you for offering a site in which students can learn more about trials. Thank you. Amanda

Good job, but I also believe a sample opening statement would greatly enhance the Web Log

Keep up the good [great!!] work!
Thanks!
