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!

How does it work?
The practice group will meet at BASF from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., every other Tuesday for seven sessions. Each 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!

If you are interested, please sign up for one or more of the following dates. Space is limited.

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.
