Three other players complete your team. As you play each hole discuss a scenario and your answers. At the conclusion of the game, head to the "19th Hole" for a panel discussion of the scenarios and answers by legal ethics specialists. Non-golfers may participate by riding the course and answering the questions at each hole.

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.
