Early Bird/Slacker CLE



Robinson Bradshaw
101 N. Tryon St., Suite 1900
Charlotte, NC 28246

Feb. 7, 2023
9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

The Robinson Bradshaw Women's Initiative is hosting its eighth annual Early Bird/Slacker CLE. Slackers can use the hours for 2022, and early birds get a head start for 2023 or 2024.

John M. Conley of Robinson Bradshaw and Robin Conley Riner of Marshall University will discuss gender and other biases that are embedded in communication in many legal settings, including the courtroom and the negotiating table. The speakers, both experienced law-and-language researchers and authors, will present evidence of how these biases work and offer strategies for dealing with them. Topics to be discussed include powerful versus powerless language, effective narrative construction, prevalent jury biases, and, more generally, the tactical impact of language choices.

Robinson Bradshaw's Laurie Smith Helms will moderate the second portion of the CLE, with panelists Kelly Luongo Loving and Angelique R. Vincent-Hamacher of Robinson Bradshaw, and Deanna Lindquist of Bluewater Dispute Resolution Group. You will get practical tips and advice on how to find and effectively use your personal negotiating style, and the panel will discuss negotiations in the corporate arena, the courtroom and mediations. 

Limited capacity. RSVP required.

2.5 hours of North Carolina CLE credit pending. We can provide a certificate of attendance for those seeking out-of-state CLE credit or paralegal credit.
