The Persuasive Power of Narrative

Conference this year will be at the Westin Hotel and Conference Center in Westminster, CO, September 11-13. We will be focusing on the persuasive power of narrative to tell our clients’ stories to the finder of fact, at motions hearings, at trial and at sentencing. Matthew Taylor, award-winning author, storyteller and founder of Persuasion through Narrative will be leading plenary and small-group sessions designed to identify the storytelling potential inherent in legal settings. Andrea Lyon, Dean of Valparaiso Law School, will speak about telling the story of the client with mental illness. Former Chief Deputy Public Defender David Wymore will present on ethical and effective Crim.P. 35(c) litigation. Amy Devan will cover the ethics of social media. Professor Robin Walker Sterling of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law will teach us how to tell the client’s story when the client’s story is one of race. Larry Pozner will teach us how to tell the client’s story through cross examination. Other speakers will be announced as they are confirmed.
