Along with the nation’s largest trial lawyer association, Levinson and Stefani’s Ken Levinson will be moderating a webinar on neuroscience on August 24th.
The event, named “Improving Communication Skills Through Neuroscience, Clean Language, and Metaphors,” will be held online by the American Association for Justice on August 24th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
AAJ says that “the power of neuroscience unleashes the subconscious” and allows for an exploration of what people really think and want to say. Faculty giving presentations at the event will dive into the use of metaphors and clean language at trial, and their effects at depositions.
“I’ve been studying persuasion and decision-making for years,” said Levinson. “This is an ever-growing field and is important for trial lawyers in making sure that juries learn the truth about our clients’ cases, as well as the best way lawyers can argue on behalf of our clients.”
The event will consist of a seminar called “Using Metaphors and Clean Language at Deposition and Trial,” which will cover topics such as identifying metaphors within a legal context, exploring metaphors using clean language, and “harvesting gold from your deponents by identifying patterns.”
There will also be interactive workbook activities for attendees as well as a question and answer session to follow.
“I believe they picked me to moderate because I have such a strong interest in the topic and am a co-chair of an AAJ litigation group that deals with juror bias and related topics,” Levinson explained. “I’m hoping to learn more about how people process language and how to improve these skills to better represent my clients.”
The event presenters will be Robyn L. Wishart of Wishart Brain & Spine Law, and Marian Way of Clean Learning.
