In law school, it can seem like a few people are just cut out for the public speaking jobs, and those students are the ones that go on to be the trial lawyers of the world. Almost everybody else has an aversion toward public speaking. However, nearly every lawyer has to make presentations to groups periodically throughout his or her career, whether it is to gain a client’s business, present a CLE to colleagues at your firm, or to appear at an occasional hearing. During this session, you will learn how to become comfortable and effective at public speaking, even if you don’t plan on having to do it very often.
