the end of the show and announced live I’m joined now by Joey Lynn Darius Troy
DeLeon and Jennifer Gerard of brown Dean of the School of Law thank you so
much for joining me tonight happy to be here so Troy and Joey Lynn Troy we’ll
start with you why did you choose the Quinnipiac School of Law
sure so growing up in Connecticut I really wanted to stay local and
Quinnipiac was a natural choice I also chose Quinnipiac for a pretty unique
reason I came here on accepted students day and as soon as I arrived on campus I
just felt the tight-knit community the camaraderie of just everyone in the
building and it really drew me in and it was the best decision I made so far in
joylynn there’s something unique about your experience here at the Quinnipiac
School of Law why don’t you tell us a little bit about that
yes so I am a mom of three and it worked full-time so I was looking for a school
that was strong academically that was competitive but had a strong flexible
part-time program that would allow me to continue working and Quinnipiac
exemplifies that it has a wonderful part-time program and it’s allowed me to
continue working and raising my family while attending school so Dean Brown to
students who are extremely fond of the School of Law what does it like to be a
Dean of such a school that provides opportunities like these it’s incredibly
gratifying I love our students I love my colleagues I’ve been at Quinnipiac for
close to 25 years and I’ve been Dean now for five years I’m in my sixth year and
I became Dean of this school because I love it and part of what I love so much
it’s just what you heard these two students talk about the rigor of the
program and the warmth of the community it’s a really fantastic balance so
speaking about the rigor of the program why don’t you tell us a little bit about
the curriculum in the School of Law sure our faculty are obsessed with our
students and their success we talk all the time about what they need to be
learning to be effective and ethical lawyers to be ready to serve their
clients upon graduating and so we have a structured curriculum that has required
courses in the first year and the second year actually because we want our
students to have that broad legal literacy but at the same time it’s very
customizable so that students can bring their own personal interests to bear and
they can take a deeper dive into areas that they are particularly passionate
about so we have things that are called concentrations they’re kind of like
majors at the undergraduate level but they’re totally optional and they’re in
a variety of areas so students can go into greater depth in some subject areas
if they make that choice don’t forget leave your questions in the comments
section below as we move into a question this question comes from Ali and Ali
asks us what sort of student life opportunities are available at
Quinnipiac law try or joey-lynn sure so one thing about chronic back that’s
really great is exactly that the outreach into the student body so I mean
there are so many organizations and societies and intramural sports teams
there’s so much here for just about everyone I know I’m a member of variety
of different things but there is something truly for everyone
and joey-lynn you know you mentioned before how Quinnipiac fits right in
Winnipeg School of Law fits right into your life why don’t you talk a little
bit more about the community aspect that you find here so a majority of the
students that I interact with on a regular basis are my close friends we
communicate on a regular basis and it’s such a unique experience to go to a
school where you have a support system not only by your professors and the
faculty here but also your classmates and it’s honestly one of the reasons
that I love being here is just the community and
sense of support and nurture from my classmates and the professor’s here at
the school so we have another question and this question comes from Justin and
Justin asks what kind of student organizations are available to law
students there’s a lot so I know that I am a part of the black law Student
Association we have the Society for dispute resolution we have other clubs
we have Mock Trial we have moot court ya know I’m a member of Mock Trial I’m also
a member of the health odd Journal Joey Lynn is on Law Review there’s so much
Federalist Society I mean there’s tons I believe I believe we have more than 30
student organizations on campus and when you consider that there are just over
300 students in our school to be able to support that many and such a variety of
student organization shows you how engaged our students are and we see this
every year we survey our students and we find that our students remain deeply
involved in the community through these student organizations throughout their
time here don’t forget leave your questions in the comments section below
so they can be answered live on air by our guests as we move into another
question this question comes from Manette and Manette asks us could you
tell me what your bar pass rate is and how it compares to the state average
well we’re very excited about that because it was a tough bar this year the
July bar exam the news was coming out that nationwide the pass rates had had
dropped frankly and so it was really a joy for us to see that our July test
takers did very well and our first time test takers exceeded the Connecticut
state average by 12 percentage points they were ready for that exam and I
think it was because of their incredibly hard work and I think it’s also because
we offer a supplemental bar preparation course that our students can take in
their final semester of law school and that gives them a little bit easier on
ramp for preparing for the exam they’re really ready for it when it comes could
you tell us a little bit more about that career preparation course and how it
prepares them for the exam oh well this is a bar preparation course where a
professor meets regularly with the students and goes over one subject area
of the exam it it might be property or torts or contracts and uses that as an
example to help the students see what are the multiple choice questions going
to be like what do the essay is going to be like what what’s the structure of an
effective essay so they kind of get inside the psychology and the structure
of the exam and doing that through one subject area then allows them as they
move into the summer to apply those same lessons to all the other subject areas
that are going to be covered on the exam so Troy and JoEllen before we got into
these questions we talked about the student life opportunities available at
the School of Law what’s it like balancing your coursework and your
extracurriculars and how do those kind of overlay with each other well it’s
challenging but it’s manageable and I think that the way that our curriculum
is set up and the way that the faculty pushes us we’re able to achieve those
goals so for me juggling work and children and going to school to be able
to come to school and know that the professors are committed to my success
and the fact that I’m able to engage and be a part of all of these
extracurricular activities and societies just shows how manageable the program
really is and how committed the school is to our success try anything to add
sure what I found is really helpful is the variety of course selection so I
know for me personally to succeed I want to get up early do my work and be done
early on I’m not the person who’s gonna stay up til 2:00 in the morning so for
me it’s important to take earlier classes luckily there is a course that
I’m interested in that is offered at the time I want it to be so that’s really
important to set my schedule ahead of time so that I know when I can do my
best work for the entire year and beyond don’t forget leave your questions
whether you’re watching us on Facebook or YouTube in the comments section below
as we move into a question from Jana and Jana asks us on YouTube what internships
and externships are available to law students at Quinnipiac well I could talk
about the externships a bit because our externship
program is really I would say second-to-none
we’re very thoughtful about it we have more than 300 potential externship sites
in everything from courts to legislative offices to corporate general counsel
within a corporation to law firms public interest organizations nonprofits
government offices and what’s really cool about it is that the director of
our externship program who is a tenured full-time member of the faculty gets to
know the students before assigning them to an externship site so she can talk to
them about you know what kind of experiences do you want to get out of
this and what would be the right site for you and not only that but she guides
them throughout the semester they come back for a seminar at school where they
can process what they’re seeing out in the field we don’t just you know sort of
send the students out and say hey have a good time we bring them back in to make
sure that the lessons are really interactive and and and deep Troy you’ve
had some experience with the Career Development Office here at the School of
Law why don’t you tell us a little bit about that yeah so touchy on team Brown
just said a big thing for me coming to school is what can quinnipiac do to help
me succeed and I learned very quickly how helpful the Career Development
offices and the professor’s – we’ve had multiple practitioners who are
professors now and I sat down with both of them Career Development and
professors for hours going over résumés tips for success how to do well in a law
firm and I’m grateful for what they’ve done for me because I got a great
opportunity last summer at a great law firm in Arthur and it wasn’t for
Quinnipiac and all the help I got I don’t know if I would have gotten it and
I think to add to that being able to be taught by experts in the fields that
they teaches is wonderful I go into work every day learning a little bit and
applying a little bit what I’ve learned from law school into my job currently
and it’s because of the professors and the quality of teaching that they give
so I’m very fortunate for that staying on the topic of opportunities we have
the question from Justin and Justin asks what opportunities are there for law
students to get hands-on experience in the specific field of study yeah so
touching our Dean Brown said the externship and the clinic we also have
is the school’s law firm which is another great opportunity to really get
a full caseload to go from start to finish so you’re working with a
professor who is monitoring you overseeing everything that you do and
you have your own case you’re working with clients that that is real-life work
it’s not just a mock trial fact pattern that is a real-life case that’s a real
life matter I think there are great experiences and we have a clinic for
part-time evening students so if you were in the part-time program you get
that hands-on clinical experience as well through the the part-time evening
clinic program it sounds like that’s extremely valuable absolutely well
joey-lynn Troy and Dean Brown thank you so much for joining me this evening
thank you thank you come visit the Quinnipiac School of Law for yourself at
our next open house on Saturday November 3rd learn more about the outstanding
programs distinguished faculty and supportive community that make
Quinnipiac law so special to register visit quu edu slash law slash visit and
don’t miss your opportunity to win a customized Quinnipiac law prize pack
like this video by the end of the live show and we’ll select one lucky winner
live at the end of the show Quinnipiac School of Law offers a variety of
experiences one area is international law in policy and joining me now to
share their unique experiences are Leia mentai and Sheela hair thank you so much
for joining me thank you thanks for having us
so Leah Leia excuse me Leia why don’t you tell me a little bit about your
background before coming to Quinnipiac law so in college I self designed a
major in Middle Eastern language and culture and I had the opportunity to do
an internship in Yemen and also study Arabic in Jordan and based on that I’ve
taken those experiences into my time at Quinnipiac during your time at
Quinnipiac what types of international opportunities have you had well my first
year because I told my professor what I was really interested in when an
opportunity came to go to the Nobel a summit of Nobel Peace Laureates I
actually got to go to Bogota Colombia and learned all about the conflict there
and the Peace Accords and got to speak with some Peace Laureates and it was
really incredible and may I just say it was my first immersed time I met Lana
and it was incredible because this is an institution where the faculty had a
faculty meeting and they invited folks to talk and normally it’s faculty but
one of the faculty said I want the students who went to Bogota with me to
talk to the faculty about it and that’s how I got to know Leia so we’ve never
had a class together but it’s sort of that kind of environment where you can
closely interact with faculty and then what did you take away from this
opportunity well being able to go there and also actually being able to go to
Jordan for another summit I was able to use some of the experiences I’ve already
acquired in undergrad and put them together with some of the negotiation
and dispute resolution things I’ve learned here and I hope to take them
into my career going forward so she’ll obviously a very valuable
experience that Leia took part in what other opportunities are there available
to law students I was surprised when I came here a couple years ago how many
there are first of all students have traveled to
Trinity College Dublin to take a part in coursework and spend the summer there
doing that with our faculty but also with faculty from other institutions
sort of getting more law credits and sort of expanding their expertise while
being in this incredible setting I have yet to take advantage of that but I have
actually worked with the International Human Rights Society which has
essentially from scratch created programs whereby the students go abroad
and interact with other faculties other law schools to sort of exchange ideas in
terms of how the law functions there and so interestingly enough I went on a trip
to Nicaragua with these students that they had planned before I came to the
faculty and it was an incredible experience and now it even though we’ve
taken ten trips to Nicaragua this is gonna be our tenth year there are now
issues in Nicaragua but yet it sort of emphasizes the extent to which students
are so much a part of what happens here at the law school so the Nicaragua trip
was student inspired and now the students and I as the faculty
sponsor of the same group are working to see where we will go next in terms of
sort of creating new bonds and I think we’re looking towards Guatemala and some
really exciting opportunities but again extremely student driven and essentially
you know we look to students like Leia to tell us what they’re interested in
and it’s incredible because it happens with their support Sheila what is so
valuable about the customizable concentrations that are available to
school of law students well actually if I can I’d love to defer to Leia one of
my courses that I teach immigration is counts towards this concentration but
you have the founder sitting next to me or the Creator so I love it no not quite
the founder I was able to look through the catalog and saw a lot of courses
that were conducive towards international law and policy and so
working with some faculty members I was able to help design it and design this
concentration and it’s just really exciting because faculty are so
supportive and I was able to work with them and Dean Brown and within five
months the concentration was approved and on the website and Quinnipiac has
just done a really great job of supporting it students don’t forget
leave your questions in the comments section below whether you’re watching on
Facebook or YouTube as we move into a question from Shelby and Shelby asks us
what types of clinics are at Quinnipiac and do most students complete
externships yes well I think actually I don’t know Leah if you have some
experience with clinics or externships but I actually teach in the clinic it’s
called our Quinnipiac University School of Law civil justice clinic and actually
we’re a broad clinic so within the clinic I handle immigration cases but
also family cases but I work with two other practitioners clinical faculty who
work on a range of issues including you know prison conditions litigation as
well as LGBT issues so we do a big range of things and we also focus on policy
projects so one dozen I Laurie and act exactly so with the Immigration projects
we’ve really gotten into the area of siloam because
seems to be an area that you know Quinnipiac students are interested in
and I think it’s largely because we’re close to New York New Haven has an
incredible number of refugees who are being resettled by NGOs and I think our
proximity to New York really has shaped a lot of this interest in Internet in
the area of international law and students have really I think taken
advantage of the proximity of New York to work at really incredible NGOs but
also the populations are very local here in New Haven and in Connecticut as well
as to externships I think Dean Brown had mentioned that we have an incredible
externship program and what I tell students and again this is along the
lines of folks like Leah I just had a student come to me today saying I’d like
to actually do a experience abroad in India and we had students in the past
who said I’d like to go to South Africa and do some work there and so and she
was talking about resettlement and I actually worked at iris the refugee
resettlement agency in New Haven and I was able to help
mostly Syrian refugee families who were applying for green cards and I was able
to translate for them and book appointments in Arabic and things like
that so using international experiences also in this area international
opportunities are all around us even in Connecticut and I think that’s what
Quinnipiac is trying to show us exactly so I tell students if this is your
interest you know we have someone who is amazing on externships so sort of bring
this idea and we’ll work together to think about what makes a good externship
and a lot of times it ends up to be very much what the student had in mind before
because again faculty really care about students so they just want to make
things happen for us that we want are there any international externship
experiences available to law students well I would call them international
overseas experiences so again there are many and our students have gone again to
South Africa and Ireland Nicaragua and hopefully coming up Guatemala we also
have this really interesting program that’s starting to take off that happens
sort of at different times in the year it’s called the Oxford symposium and
students actually in a next week are going to be going to the UN to work with
experienced academics and practitioners in the area of human rights to study
sort of at the UN itself with these very experienced folks who are actually doing
this work to sort of develop their expertise in this area and we also have
a program in this summer and the spring whereby students instead of going to the
UN will actually go to Oxford to study human rights and I was actually really
excited this is one of the things I love about being a faculty member is you get
to travel with the students to go to some of these places and it’s just a
totally different experience you can be in the classroom but in the clinic it’s
different and then even more different in Oxford where you are learning about
civil rights human rights issues and Refugee in the refugee experience with
students during the day and at night sort of going out to have scones or a
beer this program this summer in Oxford was incredible because not only were we
learning about sort of the refugee experience from people who are on the
ground working for NGOs that essentially resettle and assist refugees we then
traveled to Greece in fact the Isle of Lesbos with two students from the law
faculty and you know it was just I open and incredible because the Aegean Sea is
right there Turkey is just within eyeshot and you can understand how there
are so many refugees essentially coming in these these makeshift boats and and
trying to seek a better life and so I you know it was amazing we went into a
refugee camp that you’re probably reading about in the news called Moria
by day and it was excruciating ly hot and it was just an intense experience
seeing folks living there in such conditions and you know and then you go
with your students in the afternoon and you know relax and cool off in the
Aegean Sea so it’s it’s a weird wonderful experience to be able to go
with your students and sort of put that into practice don’t forget leave your
questions in the comments section below whether you’re watching on Facebook or
YouTube so they can be answered live on air by our guests Sheila we talked about
earlier the civil justice clinic and something else that you are a part of is
the human trafficking prevention project why don’t you tell us a little bit
that yes so I came as a practitioner I was a practicing law for quite a number
of years before coming to Quinnipiac to teach and I had connections with folks
who had been in law enforcement and the there’s a trafficking task force and
anti trafficking task force in Connecticut that had recently it’s they
successfully passed a new initiative in Connecticut that was pretty
groundbreaking and one of the provisions was that we would have trainings for all
hotel employees in the state of Connecticut all hospitality industry
employees and so there was no funding for this but a group of organizations
got together including state organizations like the Department of
Family and Children nonprofits law enforcement and and NGOs that helped
trafficking victims reach safety and and adjust re-enter life came together to
essentially make this happen and they said that the perfect way to do
this is to sort of train our students and to have them go into the hotels and
interact with hotel employees and sort of a tent teach them how to identify
signs of trafficking and also what to do when you see these signs so it’s been an
incredible experience and I think the students really enjoy it because they’re
putting their legal knowledge to work which is I think something we do really
well here at Quinnipiac there’s wonderful things going on in the
classroom but they’re really concrete practical programs that I think when our
students graduate they come out with these incredible skills that distinguish
them from other folks so these students really develop their public speaking
skills in front of a large audience and they’ve you know it’s been an incredible
experience because we’ve also developed estrange expertise hearing from folks on
the ground who are in hotels describing to us some of the unique problems that
they see in the industry so we’re now just exploring lots of ways to sort of
take that beyond hotels and maybe into hospitals and other
schools Malaya and Sheila thank you so much for joining me tonight thank thank
you come visit the Quinnipiac School of Law for yourself at our next open house
on Saturday November 3rd learn more about the outstanding programs
distinguished faculty and supportive community that make Quinnipiac law so
special to register visit quu edu slash law slash visit and don’t miss your
opportunity to win a customized Quinnipiac law prize pack like this
video by the end of the live show and we’ll select one lucky winner live
before the end of the show the Quinnipiac law school is known for
preparing their students and joining me right now is Emily Katz and Scott
Donahue Emily and Scott thank you so much for joining me thanks for having us
Scott I need that time thank you I appreciate it awesome tie
so Emily we’ll start with you could you tell us a little bit about where you are
in your career after law school sure I graduated Quinnipiac law in 2016 right
after that I started clerking up the Connecticut appellate court I’m here in
Connecticut working for two judges behind the scenes kind of giving them my
recommendations on how cases should turn out after that I started clerking for a
federal district judge in Bridgeport for the District of Connecticut so I work
currently for him doing both legal and and administrative work behind the
scenes let’s go so I just graduated in May I took the bar exam in July so I’m
waiting for those results I’ll get those in November but once I get those back
I’ll be a judge advocate in the Marine Corps so Scott why Quinnipiac School of
Law what what drew you to those so I went to Quinnipiac undergrad as well so
I I already knew that what the the close-knit community was like and it
really drove me to come here just the small class sizes and the interaction
with with fellow students and with end faculty as well you really get to know
each other and really support each other throughout the three years Emily yeah I
went to a small undergrad I really feel like that was a great environment for me
I loved having a small class size having a really community feel I’m from
Connecticut so I wanted to stay local and so I came to an event at Quinnipiac
the public interest law project auction which is a really fun event that raises
money for students who are working in Public Interest
internships unpaid over the summer and it was wonderful to see faculty and
students just having a great time with each other outside of the classroom and
I knew that was a kind of community that I really wanted and that has definitely
exceeded my expectations not only do you get wonderful professional relationships
with professors but you also make personal relationships that don’t end at
graduation I graduated in 2016 I got married in May and a number of my
professors traveled to New Hampshire for my wedding and it was wonderful to have
them there and celebrate with them so don’t forget to leave your questions in
the comment section below so they can be answered live on air by our guests as we
move into a question from Shelby and Shelby asks is the barb prep course
solely for the Connecticut bar exam or do or do you provide a course for the
universal bar exam as well well Connecticut is a universal bar exam
state as of a couple years ago and the prep course is pretty universal it’s
tailored to the main subjects that you’ll see in the bar exam contracts
torts criminal law all things you’ll see on no matter what bar exam you’ll take
so the the course is really very general so anyone taking any state I took
Connecticut I know Scott did not take Connecticut
I took New Jersey I I felt more than prepared I took the course in spring
semester of last year and when I was studying for the bar exam I I felt like
if I would say 90% of it was a review and that that made me more comfortable
going into the exam knowing that I really didn’t have to learn anything new
for a tough exam so that that bar prep class really and I speak for a lot of
people really helped us going into into our program for it so know we just
jumped to kind of the final class to prepare you for the bar exam but how did
the Quinnipiac School of Law prepare you throughout your experience Scott so
you’re required to take 4 out of 6 core electives I took as many of those core
electives as I possibly could things like evidence or tax and and just having
that that basis of knowledge going into the bar exam and bringing that even
further on into your legal career it makes you feel comfortable
and yeah I would agree with that 100% they create the course load so that it
does prepare you for the bar exam and I think this besides just preparing
us to you know learn the material for the bar exam I think what Quinnipiac
does is really unique and faculty take time out of their days during the bar
exam to come up to the testing site in Connecticut and provide breakfast and
lunch during the test and that is an invaluable thing that Quinnipiac offers
because it’s a very stressful time I won’t lie and you know where you’re
gonna go for lunch when you only have a certain amount of time before you have
to be back to take the second portion of the test is pretty stressful so for them
to take that stress out of it really is helpful to get you in the right mindset
and to really make you feel prepared we have a question now from Amanda and
Amanda asks us could you speak to the Public Interest curriculum and
opportunities for students interested in social justice law absolutely there are
a number of courses that you can take in public interest type areas there are
also wonderful opportunities like the civil justice clinic which I know was
spoken about at length to get the feel for working in a kind of a nonprofit
type law firm the the civil justice clinic works primarily with low-income
clients there’s also a wonderful externship program as we’ve also heard a
lot about today where you can get placed in a number of public interest
opportunities government agencies civil legal aid criminal defense in the public
defender’s office so there’s really a great opportunity to get immersed in
those public interest opportunities there’s also like I mentioned the public
interest law project which is an organization run by and comprised of
students who are interested in public interest to meet practitioners and to
kind of get to know what’s out there in the public interest field so we have a
question here from Andrew and Andrew asks what is the average class size of a
1l class so typically the the class size will get broken up into two sections and
a lot of times you’ll have a false class with that section so I would say about
typically in my 1l classes we’re anywhere from 50 to 65 people I know
that after your 1l year that size goes down dramatically
I’ve even had class with four people so you really get to connect with your
professors and have an engaging conversation with your professors and so
I’m sure being able to engage with your professors is something extremely
valuable Justin asks us what is the faculty to
student ratio and our faculty easily-accessible so in your experience
Emily our faculty easily-accessible yes 100% so the ratio is 11 to 1 11
students for one faculty member and they’re very easily accessible I think
the faculty here really do care about the success of the students and they’re
also practitioners in their own right so they care about the material as well and
so you will you will very very usually find professors in their office after
hours they all have office hours where you can set up more formal meetings but
I don’t know a single professor who wouldn’t be open to just having a knock
on their door and if they’re in there they’re they’re always welcome students
are always welcome to sit down and chat with them you also see them walking
around the halls and they’re usually very open to just chatting about life or
the material or the exam or anything so they’ve very very accessible it’s got
your experience with faculty I think I speak for many people but I’ve had
faculty members come up to me and ask me if I need letter letters of
recommendation and I think that just speaks to the the community we have here
at Quinnipiac because I don’t know at many places where faculty members come
up to students a lot of times they the faculty ask the student come to come up
to them and ask them if they need anything but the faculty is so driven to
see their students succeed that they won’t they’ll do anything that they can
do to see that through and I think sorry to interrupt but I think that that is a
function of having such a small school you really get to make those personal
relationships and it’s and professors you know will go out of their way to
help students succeed in Scott I know you took advantage of the Career
Development Office to help you in your future plans after the Quinn TX school
of law how did they help you in guiding your future I went to them my second
year and I kind of told them what I what my plans were and they sat down with me
for probably hours and went over resumes and contact employers and eventually
helped me attack the Marine Corps recruiter I was
able to meet with him on campus and I kind of continued on that path but they
they were instrumental and allowing me to be where I am today well we have
another question here from Shelby and Shelby asks what is the classroom
environment like is it competitive I think law school is inherently
competitive just because people want to do well you’re spending a lot of time
and effort in law school you want to make sure that you’re doing very well I
think there’s also kind of a stereotype about law school that it’s overly
competitive people are ripping pages out of book so you can’t see it it’s kind of
the trope you hear and it’s not like that at all I think students really want
to see each other succeed I think there is really the mentality around
Quinnipiac that we all rise when everyone does well you know Quinnipiac
as a school gets better if all of the students do well and I think everyone
coming here has that mentality and so I don’t find it to be very competitive at
all I think people really want to see each other succeed I’ve had many times
where I missed a day of class and before I even had to ask I had notes email to
me from that day so before Scott before we moved into this question from Shelby
you were talking about on the Career Development Office and the Marine Corps
why don’t you tell us a little bit about your your position there so a Marine
Corps judge advocate is just essentially a lawyer in the Marine Corps and if
anyone’s ever seen a few good men that’s kind of what it’s like but I’ll have the
opportunity to represent Marines or the Marine Corps and pretty much any any
legal matter it’s also a great opportunity judge advocates pretty much
right from the get-go had the opportunity to to be in court and and
argue on behalf of the client and I think my experiences here at Quinnipiac
really allowed me to hopefully I’ll be succeeding in that field I was I was
able to compete an intramural mock trial competition here and being part of mock
trial really is a great opportunity to get your feet wet and get up in a
courtroom and kind of see if you like to be in a court and speak in front of a
