Powerful Expert Testimony Using Proven Storytelling Techniques
As every trial lawyer knows, the best story wins. Stories are the ultimate tools of persuasion. They are the emotional glue that connects you, the expert witness, to the jury. You may be the most skilled, the most educated, and the most respected expert in your discipline, but in the courtroom, this is not enough. To be persuasive you need to frame your direct testimony into a compelling narrative, so that jurors do not just listen...they care…and they embrace your opinions.
An unfortunate reality is that expert witnesses are often very factual, speak tech talk, and deliver testimony without much flavor. For the expert testimony to be effective, it must be part of a compelling story.
After completing this bootcamp, attendees will be able to:
- Utilize techniques to weave the three universal laws of powerful storytelling— conflict, struggle, resolution—into your communications with the jury
- Integrate “left and right brain strategies” to maximize your connection to the jury and maximize your overall effectiveness in litigation
- Demonstrate the communication approaches and dynamics that facilitate credible expert testimony
- Identify strengths and weaknesses in an expert’s analysis and opinions
- Interpret direct examination testimony to highlight the strengths and insulate the weaknesses of the expert’s opinions
- Specify testimony approaches to facilitate complex financial, technical, scientific, and other concepts in terms that are compelling, persuasive, and understandable by the judge and jury
