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 levels

Designed to teach lawyers how to be more natural, believable, and self-possessed and 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 workshop, 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!
