WHAT MOVIES CAN TEACH US:
Persuasive Presentation Skills for the Courtroom and the Boardroom
July 23, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
World Forestry Center, Portland
6 general CLE Credits
While it is unwise for lawyers to think they are learning the law from actors in the movies, actors, directors and writers can demonstrate how lawyers can improve their persuasion and presentation skills, whether before the court or the chairman of the board. Using movie clips and analysis from a seasoned trial attorney, you’ll learn from the approaches used in well-known classics and modern day favorites. Afterwards, learn from two skilled professionals — courtroom experts — who will show the techniques to emphasize effective persuasion, storytelling and controlling the presentation.
