Can you tell if a client is lying just by reading his eyes? Can you alter juror’s trust by the way you move your arms? Can the way you tell your story impact the jury as much as what you tell them?

The University of Tulsa Department of Continuing Legal Education will answer these questions and many more during a program on communication and persuasion on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 29 - 30.

Tuition is $295 per person for two-day registration or $165 per person for one-day registration. CLE credit is available. Veteran trial lawyer Lance Stockwell will lead the two-day session titled “Winning Communication and Persuasion” from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily in TU’s Allen Chapman Activity Center, located at Fifth Place and Florence Avenue.

Course sessions will focus on nonverbal communication, lie detection, verbal communication, persuasive writing, winning writing techniques, credibility, persuasive techniques, courtroom mastery, persuasive presentations, storytelling and judging the jury.

Stockwell has twenty-seven years of experience as a trial lawyer and is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Recognized in Best Lawyers in America, he is currently an instructor at TU. He holds a juris doctor degree from TU. For more information or to register, call Continuing Legal Education at 918-631-5612 or email TU-CLE@utulsa.edu.
