A young attorney stands before the jury. In that precious moment, the attorney must use every tool of persuasion available to convince twelve strangers to see facts from their perspective and take a side. Your side. The stakes could not be higher and the pressure could not be greater. In this program, you will learn how to craft persuasive opening statements that frame your case and powerful summations that will empower your jury to side with you and your client. We will cover both fundamental principles of advocacy and what scientific studies tell us about human decision making. You will gain practical insights on structure, style, and substance so that you can approach the jury with credibility and confidence... and win!
