Good communications skills have always been a critical part of successful lawyering. 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, finance, crises, and policy issues. And they must do so while addressing varied audiences, including the media, regulators, Wall Street, 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 two weeks of class sessions is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present during the first two weeks of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
