    I'm going into my second year of college and plan to study law at university but I recently found out that alongside examinations I would also be required to do 'presentations' what does this entail? Is the presentation grading also required at all universities and for all Law honours degrees?

    I only had one presentation during my first year.

    Had to take part in a recorded group moot for Public Law (it was worth 25% of the entire Public Law module I think) debating whether or not the UK should have a Bill of Rights.

    It'll differ from uni to uni though.

    I see! So is it more so a group debate? Only I was under the impression it was a individual presentation to a group of people which I would possibly dread!

    Kinda. We were put in a group of 5 with people from within my seminar group, given a question, conducted research, wrote a speech and split it up into sections for each person to read. We performed it in front of the course convenor, my seminar tutor and a video camera (so it could be recorded for external moderation purposes). I was nervous about it at the start too but it was alright once we got into it and we came out with both an individual mark and a group mark (the individual mark was the mark that was put forward as 25% of the module).

    The Public exam was a bitch though

    Sorry I meant Public Law exam (governments, constitutions, etc.)

    A couple of the modules will differ from uni to uni.
