Posted by Alex Miller on Feb 19, 2009
Introducing a webinar CLE by leading trial consultant Eric Oliver titled Case Story Theme: If Stories Give the Facts Their Meaning, What Gives Meaning to a Case Story?
Many trial attorneys are acquainted with the idea of a case theme. Certainly all trial lawyers know the critical importance of establishing and reinforcing the strongest possible theme for your case story.
In this webinar learn from Eric Oliver, a national expert in persuasive legal communication and author of Facts Can't Speak for Themselves, how to use a focus group to uncover the most effective theme for any case story. Additionally, learn subtle ways of inserting a theme into the delivery of the case story rather than repeating the phrase out loud.

- Learn the difference between themes, anchors and frames, and how to use the latter two to help decision makers reinforce the former
- Discover for yourself exactly why declaring your chosen theme aloud may be a big mistake
