Introduction

 Did this get your attention?

Effective storytelling is a fine and beautiful art: the tale you tell will be remembered long after other orations. In fact, you may recall learning in law school that storytelling is one of the strongest non-violent methods of persuasion - the better storyteller you are, the better you can influence others. Certainly your favourite fiction author has mastered this skill.

What You Will Learn

 Although storytelling is an art, there are skills, tools, and techniques that can be learned in order to develop the talent - both orally and in writing. To be successful, litigators and corporate lawyers must master the art of narrative writing.

Presented by globally acclaimed speaker Steven Stark, MBL's two hour webcast will show you how to pump up your legal works using techniques borrowed from fiction writing. You, too, can make your legal briefs, arguments, letters, memos, and emails almost as compelling and thought provoking as the NY Times Best Seller that you can't put down!
