Storytelling has become a popular topic among lawyers for good reason: Story is the most powerful tool of persuasion. People think in stories, not syllogisms. Story has long played a somewhat undercover role in law.
Lawyers of all levels and all practice areas will benefit from this program. The program will be interactive, with exercises designed to help lawyers take the facts of their case and use them to tell a story and will as well as how to choose among “types” of stories and characters; recognize an opponent’s story -- and how to counter it; and more.
 
Faculty: Brian J. Foley, Esq. has helped pioneer teaching storytelling as it relates to the practice of law. He is co-founder and co-organizer of the Applied Legal Storytelling conference series (five so far) and co-author of an article widely regarded as having helped start that movement. He has his own firm in Philadelphia and practices employment law (with a special focus on academia), criminal defense, civil rights, and small business law. A former professor at Florida Coastal School of Law, he has broad teaching experience, including at Rutgers, Widener, Drexel (where he won the teaching award), and Boston University.
