The plan looks goods to prepare and write the pleading. But I am still suggesting to spend more time to build up your skills, especially the art of arguing in the court. All of your members should take time to learn how to think and argue as a lawyer, including words to be used in the court. For example, one might call its adversary party as "you" or your company and argue against them directly. It will be a mistake to do that, and it is expected that you argue directly to the judges to convence them, not the adversary party. Here is a link that you can listen and learn from oral arguments in The Supreme Court of the United States: http://www.oyez.org/. If these is one in the library, I recommend you and your members to read this basic book: the first trial (http://west.thomson.com/productdetail/3769/22035831/productdetail.aspx). It is useful for those who come to the court for the first time. There are a number of books useful for you, and I think your coach may have them (http://www.asl.edu/library/pubs/lrg_advcom.pdf).

Make a stategic plan of how to work out on the days of competition, including detailed tasks from the starting to the ending program. For example, how many hours you are allowed to speak and who among your members is assigned to play in that slot of time. Do your best!
