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.

We also have special academic rules for these condensed courses:
-Students must attend each course session and cannot attend any course session remotely (even for illness or emergency situations).
-The Registrar’s Office will drop a student who does not attend each course session.

Due to the condensed nature of this course, in-person attendance at all course sessions is mandatory. Absences cannot be excused for any reason, including illness or emergencies. The Registrar’s Office will drop any student who misses a session.

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.
