    Is mooting and public speaking compulsory during a law degree. I get anxious quickly and im not keen on doing that. I've been offered to study law with philosophy at the university of liverpool and their course outline says a lot about developing communication skills.

    Communication skills may include talking to other people in seminars/classes or written skills (through essay writing).

    I don't think that any Law degree would ever force you to stand up in front of a large audience and talk, even though you may be asked to do a presentation of some to your class or something.

    I'd suggest doing something to improve your public speaking skills anyway - they help immensely in your day-to-day speaking, look good on a CV and allow you to explore issues/debates that you would have never thought to look into otherwise. The added plus is confidence, the lack of which may be causing your anxiety in the first place!
