This course is tailored specifically to Juris Doctor students with a significant focus on oral communication. Oral negotiation, presentation and persuasive skills are essential for designing and delivering effective argument, advocacy, and non-verbal communication. This course engages the tools of rhetoric, dialectics, collaboration and practical application of persuasive speech for legal and non-legal audiences. It aims to build confidence and excellence in public speaking.
This course will deliver practical exercises to advance student capabilities to analyse, construct, practise and present aspects of public and persuasive speaking. Feedback will be provided to support student personal and professional development. Students will engage Pathos, Ethos, Logos as well as the structural application of thesis, antithesis and synthesis to analyse monologues, apply vocal technique and take on a role in order to write and present their own speech. Collaboration, peer learning and demonstration will encourage students to work independently on increasing their skills in appropriate persuasive and public speaking skills.
