Improv for Lawyers Class

Yep.  You are a Lawyer and you want to know how to improvise better.  THIS is for you.

The ability to improvise – no matter what you are confronted with – is the hallmark of a truly effective lawyer. Many parallels exist between good lawyering, trial advocacy and improv comedy. Improvisers have developed tools that can help them draw an audience into a constructed stage reality. Trial lawyers have a similar goal: drawing a jury into a reconstructed version of events. Joey Novick is an attorney and nationally renowned instructor of humor and improv workshops. During this interactive workshop, he will lead you in a series of exercises that will show you how applying improv techniques in various contexts can help you become a more effective attorney, mediator or arbitrator. You’ll also find out how using improv techniques can help you add strength, animation and powerful persuasive techniques in the courtroom, at the settlement table, or when negotiating a wide variety of issues.

This is a New York State Continuing Legal Education accredited course where participants earn three (3) CLE credits.

When faced with a crisis, are you able to…
* think on your feet?
* improvise on the spot?
* maintain your poise and ability to sound authoritative?
