About the Program

In this workshop, the participant will be given a short monologue from a play, literature, or film to perform in the session. Monologues will be picked by the instructors and distributed prior to the workshop and should be committed to memory as much as possible. Individual feedback will be provided on the performance in terms of realism, connection with the audience, movement and body control, vocal techniques, and how those relate to presentation of a case in court. Participants will be able to hold their scripts, but the more that is committed to memory, the more focus and attention can be placed on the acting techniques that are important for lawyers. This exercise should help the lawyer to “get out of their head” and really be able to use the facts of the case to tell a great “story” and connect to the judge or jury.
