Produced by ACT of Communication ® From the WHAT CAN LAWYERS LEARN FROM ACTORS Series SM
ATTORNEYS AND ACTORS SHARE A COMMON GOAL … to create a compelling drama that demands the listener’s attention and convinces him or her of the credibility of the client’s story ...
Persuasion is the point of every word the actor and the lawyer speaks. A performance comes alive when the actor or lawyer connects deeply with an audience through a masterful command of evocative language, human emotion and skillful pacing … resulting in an ovation for the actor … a decisive WIN for the attorney! Presented in three sessions – webcast attendees join a workshop that offers concrete solutions to courtroom “performance” and presentation challenges.
SESSION I: Acting Like a Human Being: Demeanor and Skills in Storytelling (Opening and Closing). Attendees learn the elements of storytelling, how to create and deliver "telegrams" (ten word messages from lawyer to juror) and explore and use their own personal demeanors for sharing the client’s story in the courtroom.
