Effective communication skills for legal professionals


While most tend to think of public speaking as keynotes and speeches in front of large audiences, it is so much more.

This course will teach skills that translate into better interpersonal communication, including negotiating, interviewing and influencing, as well as oratory skills to give better business presentations, corporate seminars, legal arguments and persuasive speeches.


21 October to 2 December 2020, Wednesday evenings from 16:00 to 17:30 (seven sessions)

Course format

The course will consist of one 90-minute session per week for seven consecutive weeks.

Each session will start with a 45 to 60-minute lecture, followed by time for questions and discussion.


Darrell Bennett is a Harvard Law School graduate who has been motivating audiences around the world with his powerful personal story since he wrote his first book at 18 years old. He is a partner of The B-Squared Global Group, one of the world's leading brands in the people development business.

He will be joined by other leading experts and executive coaches who have worked with students, professionals, educators, entrepreneurs and businesses around the world.
