I must say that I had a wonderful time at the training and I learnt a lot. Lawyers in Anglo-Saxon countries say that the English language is a tool of their trade,yet so many don't use it effectively. The training equipped me with the necessary skills to use English legal writing to communicate more effectively.

For sure, everybody enjoyed the training. It was very nice to hear a native speaker, specially one with such high legal drafting techniques

Excellent course. I recommend the training 'Contract Drafting and Legal Writing'. It gave to me the chance to understand the need of Plain Legal English in contracts as a way to mitigate ambiguity or misinterpretation of a clause. Also the training clarified the context in which Anglo-Saxon Legal System is inserted, since the Brazilian Legal System is in a different one.

COURSE OVERVIEW
 
Public speaking is a necessary professional skill for all competent lawyers. Unfortunately, many do not understand the public speaking is different from just talking. Some lawyers think that they are good at public speaking because they can talk a lot and, regrettably, when they talk they like the sound of what they hear. It does not occur to them that the audience may not be so delighted, or interested. 

Lawyers often speak before legislatures, city councils, planning commissions, and give talks to civic groups, business executives, or company employees - they even give media interviews on behalf of clients.
 
 
Good public speaking is about the ability to communicate and connect with your audience. For lawyers this is even more important. People think that because you’re a lawyer, you’re automatically a fearless and brilliant public speaker. We lawyers all know this is not always true. This expectation though, is one reason why it’s more important for lawyers to have good speaking skills than it is for any other professionals. As a lawyer, it’s critical that you know how to persuade a judge or tribunal, or speak to a group of clients, shareholders or conference participants. 
But what if you’re not a natural public speaker? Don’t worry. Public speaking is a skill you can learn! 
 
This training deals with all aspects of public speaking from the preparation and structure of the presentation, through the style, tone and delivery of its content to re-inforce the message with body language and visual aids.

You can learn to speak well in all public speaking environments – from one-on-one reporting to fellow associates, or partners, to discussion groups with clients, to speaking in court and at conferences. This training is an intensive course designed to deal with every aspect of speaking in public, from preparation, through to confident interesting and persuasive delivery and includes what to do after the presentation to remind the audience of your message. The training involves preparation of content and preparation for your audience’s expectations, confident and persuasive body language to support and support your words, vocal techniques to engage and maintain audience interest, the most effective use of visual aids. The training covers ways to persuade the audience or tribunal into doing what you want, or suggest, through use of word constructions, body language and content structure. Even if you are shy about speaking in public, you can fool the audience into believing you are confident and that you have a strong knowledge of your subject - It's all about how you present yourself. The training will show you some of tricks and techniques used by professional speakers to capture, hold and engage an audience's attention - techniques you can learn to use yourself in the future.
