    1L Public Speaking Workshop

    By this point in law school you’ve learned the foundations of black letter law. You’ve learned the foundations of legal research. You’ve learned the foundations of legal writing.

    Maybe you came to law school after years of participating in speech and debate. Maybe you were active in student government or community organizing. Or maybe you’ve never done any public speaking at all. Whether you end up spending every day in the courtroom arguing to a judge or group of jurors, or in a boardroom advocating to a group of venture capitalists, a necessary part of our profession is public speaking.

    You advocate every day already. You are advocating for yourself when you write cover letters. You advocate when you interview for summer clerkships. You are using advocacy when you present at your upcoming LRW oral argument and even when you write exams or answer questions in class.

    ADVOCACY MATTERS.

    If you didn’t already experience success as an advocate, you wouldn’t be in law school. The art of advocacy as a lawyer is an important part of your legal education, no matter where your career in law takes you.

    The upcoming Workshop will offer you a chance to add more skills to your repertoire. Professors from the Advocacy Department at the University of Texas School of Law will offer two sessions for the 1L Public Speaking Workshop on Friday, February 8th and Friday, February 15th, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. You will be taught by successful trial lawyers and talented National Mock Trial Champions; you will be taught by lawyers who are hired to teach experienced lawyers how to be even better.

    You will be on your feet. You will be practicing voice and gestures. You will work on fluidity and rhythm and pace and cadence and tone. No matter what your skill level when you walked in the door, in two hours, you will be a better advocate than before. And if you show up at 12:30, we’ll even feed you lunch.

    Please contact Marla Massin at mmassin@law.utexas.edu to request a registration form. In order to tailor the workshop to your current skill level and let you get the most out of the workshop, the form includes a brief self- assessment of your current public speaking experience so that we may group people with similar experience levels together. Registration forms will also be available outside of the Advocacy Program Office, CCJ 3.338.

    For our 2019 Symposium, Texas Hispanic Journal of Law & Policy will host a Latino Lunch Series every Tuesday of February with speakers discussing various legal and policy issues on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Border Zones II: This Land is Whose Land?

    This panel will will discuss the complex legal, environmental and eminent domain issues present at Texas’ border zones. Many Texans have felt the impact of the border wall with land agents assessing the land between Texas and Mexico in the spring of 2007. The previous visits launched the most aggressive seizure of private land by the federal government in decades. What impact will the President’s talk of a border wall have on property owners? How will lawyers and scientists predict the environmental impact of a border wall? This panel will discuss the legal, property and environmental implications of a border wall in 2019. Speakers include Professor John Echeverria (Vermont Law School), Nick Laurent (Baron Adler), Roy Brandys (Baron Adler), Kiah Collier (Texas Tribune), and Professor Tim Keitt (UT).

    Lives in the Law: John Pollock

    11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. in the Eidman Courtroom and 12:45-1:45 p.m. in the Jury Room. Lunch served at 12:45.

    During the first hour, which is free and open to the public, John Pollock will discuss his work to establish the right to counsel for low-income individuals in civil cases involving fundamental rights in a talk entitled “The Right to Counsel in Eviction Cases: Successes and the Potential in Texas.” During the second hour he will meet with students more informally over lunch to discuss his life and career.

    John Pollock is a Staff Attorney for the Public Justice Center and serves as the Coordinator of the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel. He focuses entirely on working to establish the right to counsel for low-income individuals in civil cases involving fundamental rights such as child custody, housing, and benefits. Previously, he served as the Enforcement Director for the Central Alabama Fair Housing Center (CAFHC) in Montgomery, Alabama, addressing systemic housing discrimination in rental, sales, lending, and insurance. He started his legal career at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, where he worked on immigrant civil rights violations by state and federal officers, involuntary land loss in minority communities, wage/hour violations by employers of migrant workers, predatory lending, and hate crimes. While at SPLC, he founded the Heirs' Property Retention Coalition, a network of dozens of organizations across the southeastern United States working on stopping the forced sales of ancestral property within low-income African-American communities. John drafted the first version of what eventually became the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act, a uniform law to reduce forced sales that was adopted by the ABA and the Uniform Law Commission in 2011. The Act has been adopted by the states of Nevada, Georgia, Montana, Alabama, and Arkansas, and has been introduced as legislation in several other states. He attended Wesleyan University and Northeastern University School of Law.

    The “Lives in the Law” speaker series focuses on the work and lives of lawyers who strive to improve the lives of others through litigation, advocacy and public service.

    Hosted by the Career Services Office, the UT Opportunity Forum, and the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law. Cosponsored by the UT Chapter of the American Constitution Society, If/When/How, and the Public Interest Law Association.
