An energetic group of LRW profs met in Chicago this week to experience a workshop on non-verbal communications training for lawyers. We learned a lot about our own non-verbal communications habits, how to make other choices more consciously as circumstances dictate, how to recognize when those circumstances do occur, and how to begin bringing similar understanding to our law students. We couldn't have done it without the phenomenal expertise and patient coaching of Rebecca Fishel, whose work you can read more about at http://www.beyondwordshd.com/about-us.html. There's a movement afoot to bring her back to Chicago for the Central States LRW Conference in September, so keep an eye out for future announcements here if you're ready to teach legal communication skills that go beyond text.
