Fitch Even Webinar: March 10, 2021
Please join Fitch Even for a free webinar, “Using Persuasion Techniques to Achieve Litigation Success: Part One,” on March 10 at 9:00 a.m. PST / 10:00 a.m. MST / 11:00 a.m. CST / 12 noon EST.
In the fourth century B.C., Greek philosopher Aristotle described three key methods of persuasion that can be used to influence your audience—ethos, pathos, and logos. These persuasion techniques are used in all types of communication in our everyday lives. And when complex issues are involved, such as in intellectual property litigation, effectively applying these principles becomes even more important.
During this webinar, we’ll explore the ways these modes of persuasion can be used to effectively communicate throughout the life of a case, covering the following:
- An introduction to the concepts of ethos, pathos, and logos
- How to integrate persuasion techniques when developing case themes
- The importance of building a team that can communicate and persuade
- How to select and prepare effective fact witnesses
In April we will present Part Two, which will cover additional aspects of a case, including expert witnesses, communications with the court, and trial.
