Strategic Communication and Advocacy Skills for Lawyers (1st Run)
By: School of Media And Communication (SMC)
Lagos State, Nigeria
Feb 10 - 12 Feb, 2014
Law effectively is about persuasive communication and to succeed, every lawyer worth his name must be adept in the critical aspects of communication - verbal and non-verbal. In essence, the success of a lawyer is not just a function of knowledge acquired in school but more importantly, how he communicates that knowledge appropriately in a way that will make him stand out from the pack and, as well, make galactic impact on those who receive the information he intends to communicate.
Yet, many lawyers are not well equipped for this transition because it is wrongly assumed that as lawyers there is an implicit capacity to be good communicators, thereby shutting the door to strategic self-development required for optimal performance as professional or corporate legal players. It is against this backdrop that this workshop is designed to help lawyers address this salient part of career progression and success.
