    WRITING TO WIN

    Do you know what your writings are really saying to your clients and peers? Understanding the law is one thing, but knowing how to communicate it in a meaningful way is another. Being unclear in communication can cause costly errors and disastrous effects in the cases you handle.

     

    SPEAKING TO WIN

    Be your best in the courtroom, boardroom and classroom. Whether you are called upon to give legislative testimony, a presentation to clients, or comments to the press, you'll come to understand what makes a great speaker effective, and discover how to use those techniques yourself.
