Register today for the upcoming YLD Luncheon/CLE on Thursday, Feb. 28 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Chester H. Ferguson Law Center.

Title: Improvised Collaboration

1.0 CLE Credit (applied for)

Course Description: The legal profession is built on collaboration. Lawyers collaborate with clients to identify wants and needs to deliver quality services. Lawyers collaborate every day with individuals in their offices, courtroom personnel, co-counsel, opposing counsel, judges, and others. As young lawyers, part of the way you will improve the quality of your legal work and grow your practice is to learn how to collaborate with others.

This is an interactive workshop, during which the presenter will have attendees up on their feet learning new ways to listen, be heard, and collaborate with others.


• Define collaboration
• Identify whom a lawyer might collaborate with in daily practice
• Identify the benefits of collaboration
• Identify the key components of collaboration
• How to be zealous while still working collaboratively


Jennifer Strouf, a Florida Bar Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney and Improv Performer, will speak about the importance of collaboration in the practice of law and how lawyers can be zealous advocates while still working collaboratively with others. Ms. Strouf will then lead the group in a number of improv exercises designed to encourage active listening, communication through body language, communication through tone of voice, group though, and group activities.
