This interactive workshop explores the performance and oral communication skills necessary for business lawyers to meaningfully connect with clients, negotiate deals, and speak in public with confidence and conviction. Through a series of active group exercises and games, performance theory discussions, and individual assignments, you will learn how to tap into your own unique voice to authentically engage others and better represent your clients. By the end of this workshop, you should be able to speak and move with more freedom and presence, listen fully and authentically, and joyfully connect with audiences of all sizes and backgrounds. No prior performance or public speaking experience necessary or expected; just bring your full attention, a sense of curiosity and play, and a willingness to use and share your voice.


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 or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
