CB&P Managing Partner Tim Clinton and his former colleague Allan B. Moore, the co-chair of Covington & Burling LLP’s Arbitration Practice Group, will present a Luncheon Program on May 1, 2012 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm at the DC Bar Offices entitled, “Practical Tips for Effective Oral Advocacy.”
The DC Bar describes the event as follows:
“Oral advocacy–the art of persuasively presenting ideas verbally–is an integral part of every lawyer’s practice, even those who never set foot in a courtroom.”
“Oral advocacy–the art of persuasively presenting ideas verbally–is an integral part of every lawyer’s practice, even those who never set foot in a courtroom. Lawyers make verbal presentations in conference calls, team meetings, business development lunches, negotiations, mediations, and countless other daily interactions with clients, subordinates, supervisors, opponents, and decisionmakers.
Contrary to the Hollywood ideal, persuasive oral advocacy does not require Oscar-worthy performances. This fun event is designed to provide practical and time-tested tips to help any lawyer–from tongue-tied wallflowers to silver-tongued orators–to become effective in any forum.
This Luncheon Program is sponsored by the Young Lawyers Committee of the Corporation, Finance and Securities Law Section in cosponsorship with the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section, the Courts, Lawyers, and Administration of Justice Section, the D.C. Affairs Section, the Family Law Section, the Intellectual Property Law Section, the Law Practice Management Section, and the Taxation Section.”
The event will be held at the D.C. Bar Conference Center, 1101 K Street, NW, Conference Center, Washington DC 20005. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact the DC Bar’s Sections Office at (202) 626-3463.
This luncheon event is free for law students, government and non-profit employees, and unemployed lawyers; $10 for members of one of the sponsoring sections; and $15 for non-section members. You may register for the event at the DC Bar’s website. For registrants requesting a reduced fee please go here and follow the instructions.
