On Friday, January 25, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Chicago Chapter of the Federal Bar Association will host a fascinating discussion by award-winning author and First District Appellate Court Justice David Ellis on the use of storytelling by lawyers to persuade an audience. A prolific author, Justice Ellis has published 14 novels, including several with acclaimed fiction writer James Patterson. Through his fiction writing, distinguished service on the bench, and his time as a practicing lawyer, Justice Ellis has a tremendous breadth of experience to share on writing, effective storytelling, and the art of persuasion.

The event will take place at The Chicago Bar Association, 321 South Plymouth Court, Corboy Hall, Chicago, Illinois 60604. One hour of CLE will be provided to participants, and lunch is included in the fee. There is a reduced rate for young lawyers (anyone under 40 with less than 10 years of practice experience). Those interested can register here.
