Come hone your public speaking skills with a little expert instruction and some hands-on practice in The Barristers Club’s newest workshop: the Public Speaking Practice Group!

NITA Instructor

How does it work?
Our final practice group will meet at BASF from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, August 25th. The session will begin with 15 minutes of public speaking tips from a seasoned litigator or other experienced public speaker. Participants will then break into small groups and take turns giving a short 3-5 minute speech in a videotaped session. The speech can be in support of a motion/project you are working on, an argument for or against a preassigned topic, or a topic of your choosing. After your speech, you will receive brief written feedback on notecards from others in your speaking group, and you will go home with a copy of your videotaped performance to evaluate your own speaking quirks and style.

Whether you are a litigator sharpening your oral argument skills or an in-house attorney with an upcoming board presentation, come join us to refine your skills in an informal environment. Beer and wine will be served!

Your registration fee includes a recording of your speech, but please bring a USB drive to the event. You will receive more information one week before the event. This is a workshop, so you will be practicing your public speaking skills.
