Find your voice and style of persuasion.
You’ve spent countless hours studying the law, from the mind-numbing “rule against perpetuities” to that old English case about the snail in the gingerbeer. But when it comes to oral advocacy — negotiating, cross-examining and arguing — you feel as though law school has not adequately prepared you. You’re now facing the added psychological hurdle of speaking in public to achieve the best results for your hopeful client.
In 4-8 weeks, you will learn acting techniques to help you: manage your nerves; find your voice and style of persuasion; improvise without losing your momentum; and convey confidence, authority and likeability. Overcome your fear and become proud of how well you speak in public.
