About the Program
This workshop is designed to enable lawyers to maintain loyal,
well-informed, and satisfied clients even when “bad news” must
be delivered. Professor Marjorie Aaron, author of
Client Science:
Advice for Lawyers on Counseling Clients Through Bad News and
Other Legal Realities
(Oxford University Press, 2012) will present
key insights from her book, drawn from social science research
as well as nearly a thousand simulated counseling sessions with
actor-clients. The workshop will focus on practical ways lawyers
can be more effective when communicating with clients about
complicated legal process, issues, and ambiguities, conveying the
realities of risks and the importance of difficult choices. We will
learn how choices in ordering and wording a lawyers’ message
can undermine or enhance its clarity and impact, and the client’s
willingness to absorb its significance. Participants will learn
how strategic use of voice and gesture can affect client rapport,
relationship, and receptiveness to complex and unexpected infor-
mation. Attendees will receive a FREE copy of Aaron’s 270 page
book, a $40 value.
