It has become more vital than ever before that attorneys understand the best tools with which to present information and how to use them. From interoffice roundtables to CLE seminars, the key is in the presentation.

This new CBA program not only provides you with the skills to educate your peers in effective presentation techniques, but aids you in improving your communication skills when to addressing other attorneys.

In session one of this three-part series, our presenters lay down the basics of developing a presentation or seminar, from understanding your audience's perspective to how they will learn best as well as identifying learning objectives.

The series is applicable for not just attorneys, but all legal professionals including paralegals and legal administrators.
