9:00 am – 4:00 pm
CLEBC Boardroom, 500 - 1155 West Pender Street, Vancouver

Who should attend: All lawyers who want to increase their effectiveness: from those newly called who want to improve their confidence and self-possession, to seasoned practitioners who want to enhance their skill set.

Learning level: All

Designed to teach lawyers how to be more natural, believable, and self-possessed as well as to implement simple, concrete techniques that will maximize your performance at trial, in mediation, at arbitration, and in any legal argument. These skills will enable you to take your case beyond the traditional approach to trial advocacy and give you the critical persuasive edge. You will learn by doing as each participant will be given the opportunity to make a presentation and receive one-on-one feedback and helpful techniques for improving. By the end of the session, you will possess the skills to make you a better lawyer — a lawyer who will win more arguments by making a positive connection with clients, jurors, and judges!

After taking this course you will be able to:

  • use confidence to combat nerves and increase your presence in the room
  • use your voice with more power and sophistication
  • shape your presentations into commanding and engaging performances
  • engage in authentic and persuasive contact with your audience in any work setting

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours. If you attend the course plus the optional lunch session, you will obtain a minimum of 1 hour of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management for a total of 7 CPD hours.
