Attorney Classes to Simulate Situations

they improvDeveloping the skills required for being a quality attorney takes a lot more than is taught in law school. The first time interacting with an actual human being looking to take the stand can be a shock. As opposed to someone simply referenced in court documents it's an actual person that has emotions and issues and concerns that an attorney needs to take into account in order to best prepare them for the experience to come.

Actors from THEY improv can act as potential witnesses to help attorneys and others in the firm to hone their skills at preparing witnesses for testimony. This isn't necessarily about coaching them through the details of the case, but is about helping them to relax on the stand and come across to the jury more naturally.

As an attorney presents a case, the veracity of the case is often measured by the ability of witnesses to come across as someone to be trusted and is in control of the knowledge that they are trying to relate. It's a simple fact that most people are unaccustomed to public speaking and can be nervous about the whole situation.

This is heightened even more when considering the consequences of the testimony to be given. Witnesses often worry that they might be condemning someone to jail, or taking their money, or even worse, feel that they may be putting themselves in danger. Walking the person through a quality witness prep program can better prepare them for their testimony and help them work out these concerns prior to taking the stand.
