Event description
'Tell it to the Judge' teaches solicitors how to prepare and present persuasive speeches in court, thereby always doing themselves justice!

About this event

‘Tell it to the Judge’ is a workshop that equips solicitors who speak in court with the public speaking skills required to present clear and compelling arguments. It’s a ‘must-attend’ for recently trained lawyers, solicitors who have moved into advocate roles and all diligent lawyers who don't relish the limelight.

The workshop not only teaches participants how to arrange and develop a persuasive speech, it also imparts classical acting techniques, thereby boosting courtroom presence along with confidence. By the end of the workshop, delegates will know how to:

• Arrange a persuasive speech that flows

• Edit material to avoid pointless repetition / waffle

• Introduce an analogy to reinforce an argument

• Sight-read, so they are always able to make quality eye-contact with the judge

• Use pace effectively

• Project their voices and enunciate clearly

• Use pitch and other stressing techniques to enhance their arguments

Participant numbers are kept to 8 so that all delegates get to try out the exercises and receive individual feedback.

She is a trained actor and also works as a scriptwriter. She brings elements of these disciplines to her coaching.

What Participants Say

“Our members all commented on how insightful and enjoyable they found Emma's 'Tell it to the Judge' workshop. It equipped them with practical and effective tips that they can immediately put into practice. Participants said they would highly recommend the event to other lawyers and, therefore, I would too” Rachel Windle, Leeds Law Society

“I desperately needed help with my advocacy skills. I knew I wasn't representing my clients well enough. Emma taught me how to arrange my arguments and sight-read my statement which has made a hugely positive difference. I'm now working on my voice and memory techniques with her so I can appear all the more accomplished in court.”
