Law & Literature: Lawyer Storytelling

the_chukchi_storyteller-1369177278m

We can understand the law, like our own lives, through stories. After all, humans are the “storytelling animal,” as many have noted. But understanding this central truth about us is not enough, if we are to become the most capable advocates.

We must also study the essential structures and key ingredients that make the best stories effective.

How do stories work and why? What time-tested narrative principles best serve stories? What are some of the best stories ever told and why have they lasted so long, memorably convincing so many readers? And, just as important for the legal advocate, how can the answers to these and other law-lit questions guide our own truthful storytelling on behalf of clients?

Law & Literature can provide meaningful, useful answers for lawyers – the “storytelling animal” whose nature matches his or her calling.
