    How to marry the elements of plot and theme to create a coherent and persuasive legal argument

    Studies by law professors and articles by the likes of Richard Posner illustrate how persuasive stories are in affecting judicial decision-making and how underappreciated the storytelling art is among lawyers.

    Giving judges a reason, on a human level, to decide cases in your favor requires briefing grounded in law and logic coupled with a story that evokes an emotional response, often on an unconscious level. Our typical story highlights people who encounter business misconduct, fight against the stronger adversary while bucking long odds (the conflict that drives the story), and who should ultimately prevail if justice and fairness are honored (the climax and denouement).

    Skillful storytelling takes a brief from the law school writing course instruction of producing a “just the facts” soullessly objective piece of technical writing to the evocative ground of Atticus Finch moving the entire courtroom. Or at least it should. This webinar is geared to attorneys of all experience levels.


    What You Will Learn
    •    How to marry the elements of plot and theme to create a coherent and persuasive legal argument
    •    How to use deep frames to subtly convey ideas in text and subtext
    •    How to distill and recapitulate to reinforce the message of plot and theme

    If you’re a consumer advocate who has ever faced down dealers on behalf of defrauded and deceived consumers, and if you would like better federal protections for your clients, this is the webinar for you.

    The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has finally done it. In 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act granted the FTC the specific authority to write a rule tackling the unfair, deceptive, and abusive practices of motor vehicle dealers. This power lay dormant until now. The FTC recently announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking related to the sale, financing, and leasing of motor vehicles by dealers. 

    This webinar will cover the main points of the proposed rule, including NACA’s and its consumer allies’ previously submitted petition to the FTC to rein in abusive yo-yo financing. There will be a discussion on how consumer advocates should respond to the agency’s proposed actions. A particular focus will be how to help your clients file their own stories as part of this rulemaking process. 

    Vehicle dealer fraud runs rampant. If you’re a consumer advocate who has ever faced down dealers on behalf of defrauded and deceived consumers, and if you would like better federal protections for your clients, this is the webinar for you. 

    What You Will Learn

    •    What policy changes the FTC is proposing to make in consumer-vehicle dealer sales
    •    What actions advocates and consumers can take in response to the proposed rule
