Legal Stage
What Can Lawyers Learn From Actors?SM

A trial is a live event. STORY is the central element of that event. The goal of the attorney is to rivet the listener’s attention on the drama at hand, control their point of view, lead their instincts, and then convince their minds of the story’s desired end.

A play is also a live event with story at its center. The goal of the performer is to grab the audience and guide them on the journey of that story bringing with them their minds and hearts…their intellect and instincts.

The attorney is the producer of that live event and also the writer, director and the actor in that event.
