AM SESSION:  THE ART OF ADVOCACY

Webcast access 8:00 AM / Webinar 8:30 AM - 12:05 PM

CLE credit AM session only: 4.0 hours

Presenters:  Alan Blumenfeld and Katherine James, ACT of CommunicationTM

DESCRIPTION:      The attorney is called upon to assume the tasks of writer, director and actor, but is usually only trained in the rules and procedures of the law.  The Art of Advocacy:  What Can Lawyers Learn From Actors℠ teaches lawyers how to translate ideas, opinions, research and facts of a trial or other professional presentation into live three-dimensional events.   The program demonstrates how to employ the full spectrum of verbal and non-verbal communication skills of the performing artist to connect with jurors, clients and judges to win more cases, create better settlements and generally communicate much more effectively.

Attorneys and actors share a common mission … to create a riveting drama that demands the listener’s attention and directs the listener’s point of view to convince him or her of the story’s desired outcome! 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 view a filmed workshop that offers concrete solutions to courtroom “performance” and presentation challenges.

 

 

PM SESSION:  MAKE YOUR WITNESS A STAR! 

Webinar 1:00 - 3:40 PM

CLE credit PM session only: 3.0 hours

Presenters:  Alan Blumenfeld and Katherine James, ACT of CommunicationTM

DESCRIPTION: How many times have you thought you prepared a witness perfectly only to have that witness fail – either just a little, or completely and disastrously? Do your problem witnesses keep you awake at night?  Do some witnesses affect YOUR performance?

You are not alone. Every attorney knows exactly what a “star witness” looks like, acts like, and performs like. A star witness is confident, ready for whatever comes at him or her, able to communicate well with judges and jurors, and able to avoid the pitfalls of deposition and cross-examination. Most attorneys do their best to prepare their witnesses to be as close to that ideal as possible. Yet in deposition and on the stand, many witnesses do not perform even adequately, let alone as a “star.”

Whether you are brand new to witness preparation or are an old hand at good witness preparation and would just like to learn some new ways to work with problem witnesses.  The proven techniques in this program will help you create witnesses of star stature.
