The Articulate Attorney:
Public Speaking for Lawyers, Second Edition
By Brian K. Johnson and Marsha Hunter
About the Book
Whether you speak frequently to groups or tremble in fear at the rare opportunity to do so, The Articulate Attorney: Public Speaking for Lawyers will make you a more compelling communicator.
Discover answers to these common questions:
- How do I channel my nervous energy into dynamic delivery?
- What’s the best way to remember what I want to say?
- How do I stop saying um and think in silence instead?
- Why is gesturing so important? What should I do with my hands?
- What’s the best way to use PowerPoint?
Based on more than 30 years of experience coaching lawyers, Brian K. Johnson and Marsha Hunter address the distinctive communication skills expected of attorneys. They offer practical, immediately useful solutions that integrate cutting-edge discoveries in human factors, linguistics, neuroscience, gesture studies, and sports psychology. These techniques will transform you into a more confident speaker, whether addressing colleagues in a conference room, counseling clients in a boardroom, or presenting a CLE in a ballroom.
“This book should definitely be one of the most read, re-read, and earmarked books on a lawyer’s bookshelf.”
