    This panel will feature English Professor Jill Patterson, a former Soros Justice Fellow who serves as the Case Storyteller for the Texas Regional Public Defenders Office for Capital Cases. Professor Patterson regularly works as a litigation team member, interviewing capital clients and helping the attorneys develop the client’s narrative and the themes for trial. She will provide techniques for developing powerful personal narratives for clients.

    She will be followed by attorney-filmmaker Doug Passon, who has pioneered the field of producing videos for sentencing hearings. In an interactive session, accomplished attorneys will discuss how they and the audience might integrate Patterson’s and Passon’s techniques, and other storytelling tips, into civil and criminal cases, and non-litigation matters.

    The program will also address ethical issues related to crafting client narratives.

    This program was presented at The John Marshall Law School; Legal Writing, Ethics & Persuasion Track.
