Good communications skills have always been a critical part of successful legal counsel. This is especially true in companies, where in-house counsel must partner with their Corporate Communications colleagues to buttress legal arguments with compelling storytelling related to litigation, mergers and acquisitions, crises, and policy issues. And they must do so while addressing varied audiences, including the media, regulators, internal stakeholders, and others. This class will explore the relationship between the legal profession and its more-public counterparts in successfully telling stories that advance the interests of clients.


Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend in order not to be dropped.
