Storytelling for Lawyers is themed around Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Written by Charles Dodgson, a mathematician at Oxford University, the book is an exuberant satire of the law – Alice is a logical thinker in a capricious world – and its exploration of social injustice, personal identity, body dysphoria and drug addiction means it has never been more relevant.
The class includes a live psychology experiment, a practical exercise and topical examples.
“Recognizing the centrality of storytelling to the legal profession is not enough. Lawyers should also study the elements and structure of stories, how they work and why.”
Jonathan Shapiro, former US Assistant Attorney
