  • "Speak the Speech": Shakespeare and the Art of Rhetoric (6/23/2021)

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 06-23-2021 at 12:00 PM (CDT)

    In this unique program, we will use examples from Shakespeare to learn about various modes of persuasion, and tangible strategies for improving your style and delivery in the courtroom.

    As part of our legal training, we are not taught presentational, oratorical, or storytelling skills, which are essential for any litigator.  These skills cannot be taught by reading a book; they require practice.  Shakespeare is the perfect teacher because he is a master of rhetoric and through his works we learn storytelling, emotion, empathy, and presentational skills to help us become more effective communicators. In this unique program, we will use examples from Shakespeare to learn about various modes of persuasion, and tangible strategies for improving your style and delivery in the courtroom.
