Public speaking is not a soft skill. It’s a power skill!
You know law, but do you know how to confidently engage and persuade others? Effective public speaking for attorneys is about so much more than knowing the law and how to apply it to particular situations.
People expect you, as a lawyer, to be accomplished in each aspect of your profession, and nothing is more apparent than your public speaking and presentation skills. Consequently, your ability to communicate an idea in an engaging, persuasive, and inspiring manner can be the difference between a typical career and a stellar one.
Whether you’re a seasoned partner or a junior associate, a litigator or a transactional lawyer, being a powerful and effective speaker provides an advantage that many professionals do not possess.
