I have listed Comm/Law as my first preference and am pretty confident I can get an offer. However, I am starting to have second thoughts because I am quite a shy person and I understand that a Law degree requires public speaking skills. While I am able to do speeches here and there, the thought of a degree that is potentially full of public speaking does freak me out. I can't find any answers anywhere so please please help me out!
So to past and current Monash Law students, how much public speaking is involved? I have heard there is mooting done but is this compulsory or specific to electives? It may seem odd that a shy person would want to do Law but I am aiming for a behind-the-scenes career, such as dealing with company policies and stuff instead of becoming a barrister, solicitor etc (I would like to avoid the court room).
Any answers will be very much appreciated!!
