Alice was not a bit hurt, and she jumped up on to her feet in a moment: she looked up, but it was all dark overhead; before her was another long passage, and the White Rabbit was still in sight, hurrying down it.

A science-based journey into the world of storytelling

Discover why we are wired to view the world through the lens of story and how this shapes our thoughts and actions – and illuminates everything from climate change to the culture wars.

You will acquire insights and tools that will help you use stories to sell strategy, unite teams, drive change, bridge cultural gaps, show values in action, connect with colleagues, attract new recruits, build brands and impart ideas.

You will learn how to:

  • Structure a good story
  • Bring characters to life
  • Evoke a sense of place
  • Persuade and influence

The class 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 explores social injustice, personal identity, body dysphoria and drug addiction.

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
