Storytelling for Lawyers (Professionalism Day 2021)

Professionalism Day 2021 Leadership Development 1L Session Option Leaders understand the power of a great story. A story can motivate, inspire, change our thinking and rally others to action. Great storytellers also maintain a true “presence,” awaken listeners, and communicate important ideas. This experiential workshop will train students to become dynamic, animated storytellers and use their personal stories to powerfully communicate their core values, particularly as an expression of their professional identity. Indeed, a powerful story - composed of images rather than ideas, emotions rather than facts, and principles rather than cliche phrases - impactfully illustrates the “what” and “why” of your core values. Join this experiential workshop and leave ready to tell your own story with passion, presence and purpose.
