Public Speaking & Oral Advocacy: How to Do It Well
About the Program:
Public speaking is a skill that every lawyer must master, including lawyers who will never set foot in a courtroom. Lawyers must be able to articulate their ideas succinctly and persuasively in order to attract clients, communicate ideas in meetings with colleagues, train younger lawyers, impress supervisors – and, of course, win in court. But many lawyers spend their days communicating exclusively through writing or e-mail, and find themselves tongue-tied when suddenly confronted with a live audience. Public speaking can be an intimidating exercise, but it doesn’t have to be.
Let lawyer, author and professor of oral advocacy, Molly Bishop Shadel show you how, with a little advance preparation (and a little rehearsal), anyone can become an effective public speaker. Whatever your experience level, you’ll leave this program with a step by step approach for writing and delivering more effective oral presentations in the future.
