Come to Classroom 1 at noon on Tuesday, March 12, for a Lunch & Learn session on public speaking.
Dr. Chris Sawyer, Professor of Communication Studies at Texas Christian University, will examine causes of public speaking anxiety "stage fright" and provide methods to help reduce and alleviate anxiety caused by speaking in public. This presentation will be beneficial as you prepare for moot court, and for any other public speaking (be it in the courtroom or not) you may have to do in the future. The presentation will also provide ways to help others you may come into contact with who experience stage fright.
Dr. Sawyer is among the top 100 published scholars in the field of Communication Studies and focuses his research on the causes, symptoms, and treatments of speech anxiety. He is a past chair of the National Communication Association Apprehension and Avoidance Commission, past chair of the TCU Department of Communication Studies, and currently is the Chair-Elect of the TCU Faculty Senate.
This event is sponsored by the Oklahoma Attorney's Mutual Insurance Company and the Board of Advocates.
