Public Speaking

B507 is taught by Currell

This course will be an intensive working session with the following components:

a. Explore the essentials of an effective speech or presentation with an emphasis on

communicating complex information in a legal context outside the parameters of a courtroom (e.g., communicating to clients; making public policy recommendations; presenting a problem statement and analysis to a management team; communicating an action plan for a transaction);

b. Apply the principles of constructing an effective set of presentation materials;

c. In small groups, practice making short presentations, receiving and providing

feedback on those presentations, to develop experience and to internalize the

principles of what works and what doesnt in presentations/public speaking;
