More than any other profession, the practice of law depends on the effective use of words, communication and persuasion. Through the study of some of the great American political speeches and presentations of recent times, this practical seminar focuses on the basics of public speaking for all lawyers. Whether you are called upon to give legislative testimony, give a presentation to clients or simply have to talk to the press, this program enables you to understand what makes great speakers effective and to use those techniques yourself as a lawyer.
The course includes fun, practical, improvisational exercises-to be done in class and then at home-to enable you to improve on your own and conquer anxiety. Challenges unique to women speakers are also addressed. Whether you're a trial lawyer or simply have to give that occasional talk, don't miss this unique opportunity to improve an essential skill: the dos and don'ts of public speaking.
