'Gendered' Communication and Its Effect on Persuasive Advocacy


Hosted by the Criminal Justice Section

Gender activist Kate Bornstein famously said: "It's a difficult place to live, being neither/nor in an either/or world."  

To be an effective advocate, a lawyer must be familiar with the characteristics of message receivers that may affect their susceptibility to be influenced by persuasive messages. The most effective messaging in an advocacy strategy may require that we employ language that feels uncomfortable because it seems incomplete or even inaccurate in some respects. This program is an examination of transgender and non-binary attorneys’ experience in law.

Panelists will address the following topics, among others:
How advocates adapt to and adopt juror expectations of a "competent" attorney
How advocacy is perceived and received differently based on perceived gender
How we can stop reinforcing a “gendered” paradigm in our advocacy pedagogy

Not only is this presentation eye-opening, but it promises to educate and empower!

Scott Gratson
