Using Visual Advocacy to Persuade Where Mere Words Fail

Originally presented:  July 24, 2018     |     Course length:  3.0 hours

Every day, lawyers communicate with colleagues, clients, judges, and others about a wide variety of legal issues. And when we communicate, we often use PowerPoint slides, which we affectionately refer to as our “slide deck.” Many, if not most, of the slides decks used by lawyers are awful – unappealing, unhelpful, distracting, and boring.

In this program, you will learn the essentials for making a great visual presentation. You’ll see how to create and edit basic slides, how to organize your slides to communicate your main themes and ideas, and how to employ principles of design to take you presentation to the next level. Learn basic design principles you can use to improve your next presentation to colleagues, clients, judges, or anyone else!

A Step-by-Step Guide to PowerPoint Presentations
Everyone could benefit from a PowerPoint refresher course. In this session, you’ll learn the absolute basics for creating a solid PowerPoint presentation from scratch, including how to:

  • select the right font
  • quote key documents
  • use graphics and pictures to advance your points
  • create simple animations to explain certain concepts
  • organize your slides to achieve the most bang for your PowerPoint buck

Taking Your Presentation to the Next Level
What makes a good presentation great? In this session, we will show you many good presentations and then take your through the editing process (both visual and oral) so you will be ready to improve your own presentations. You’ll learn how to:

  • catch some common mistakes you are making in the oral delivery of your slides
  • create that one AMAZING slide that captures the key message you are trying to convey
  • go “old school” by using your own handwriting in a presentation to better connect with your audience
  • use big boards, dashboards, or physical objects to enhance your presentation

A few years ago, Stanford Law School and the Stanford Design School joined together to create Stanford’s Legal Design Lab, which has the express purpose of using “design thinking” to improve the functioning of, and access to, our legal system. Faegre Baker Daniels is the Official Partner of Stanford’s Legal Design Lab, and David Gross and Kate Razavi are two leaders in the emerging field of Legal Design.
