Attorneys and theatre artists both share a passion, understanding and love of language.  Attorneys wordsmith to fulfill the rules and requirements of procedure in the courtroom.  Playwrights wordsmith to move people to action.  Actors and attorneys then take the words they have been given (or have given themselves) and attempt to bring the persuasion that is written in them to life.

Inflection allows the actor and attorney to take the finely crafted words and corral attention, pin ideas, persuade, to convince with the sound of the voice at the ends of phrases and sentences.  Orchestration allows the playwright and attorney to build phrases in language that the attorney/actor can then deliver using pitches that build up and down according to the writer's desire.  When we discuss meter and rhythm, it is the music of language itself that we are inviting attorneys to turn their attention to as we do in the theatre.

In this tape, the viewer will learn along with the workshop participants the three main inflections (falling, rising and sustained).  Orchestration is learned through a written exercise, a performance exercise and observing the workshop participants.  Meter and rhythm in language are taught through lecture.  Viewers learn how to apply these devices to closing argument along with the workshop participants.
