All the World’s an Opening Statement

 

All the World’s an Opening Statement

A trial is nothing more than a scripted, rehearsed play. A good trial lawyer is the actor, the playwright, and the director of an effortless performance to a small, powerful audience of twelve. Opening statements are the trial’s prologue; they’re not much ado about nothing. Opening statements are the critical first scene where attorneys begin to compete for the jury’s headspace. In this presentation, we’ll draw upon theatre and William Shakespeare as we guide you through the process of understanding, drafting, and delivering an opening statement.
