Whether you are addressing the jurors or judge directly, or reaching them through dialogue with a witness, your power of persuasion in the courtroom depends upon your ability to communicate effectively - off the page, in person. Joshua Karton, president of Communication Arts for the Professional, specializes in how to apply the personal communication skills of theatre/film/television to the art of trial advocacy. What are the specific skills (not gimmicks, not tricks) of director, actor, playwright and screenwriter, that vault oral argument off the yellow pad and move the listeners to action? Twenty-five years of investigating this question culminated in Mr. Karton's preparation of Professor Katyal's winning argument to the US Supreme Court in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld.

The Harris County Criminal Lawyers' Association invites you to a sequence of workshops – intensive, interactive laboratories - focusing on skills and techniques for

1) achieving personal, one-to-one contact with jurors;

2) discovering story structure/storytelling strategies;

3) expanding vocal range, inflection, expressiveness;

4) transforming stage fright into stage presence;

5) humanizing your client.
