The CLE program "Advanced Written Persuasive Advocacy - Integrating theme and theory into your written advocacy" was originally presented and recorded on April 8, 2021, as part of the Law Practice Today Expo.
This course will cover effective written advocacy in trial and appellate courts. This class - for all attorneys, but especially for those communicating with the courts - explores how the art of storytelling can be integrated into your complaints, pleadings and memos. The Organized from Aristotle's three-part framework of logos (rule-based reasoning), pathos (the emotional resonance of the case), and ethos (credibility of the writer), this talk will include lessons on classical rhetoric as well as modern storytelling techniques.
Presenter: Lucy Jewel, University of Tennessee College of Law
