A signature skill of an exceptional leader is the ability to communicate effectively across social, economic, cultural and other boundaries. While in law school you will need to communicate with various audiences. You will interview for jobs; ask faculty to supervise papers, review exams, or write recommendations; navigate administrative tasks; participate in moot courts; work with real employers and clients in clinics, externships, pro bono projects, or summer internships; persuade peers to elect you to leadership positions; mentor and tutor other students, and more. The goal of this workshop is to teach you the importance of knowing your audience in crafting persuasive, impactful communications that will allow you to effectively lead others.
Prof. Eric Talley, the Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law and Co-Director, Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership, and Anne Williams-Isom '91, CEO of the Harlem Children's Zone, will lead the workshop.
Refreshments will be served.
