On Thursday, June 6th, author and professor Heidi Brown spoke to Coughlin Duffy's Women's Initiative Group and attorneys.
Ms. Brown is currently the Director of the Legal Writing Program at Brooklyn Law School. She was also a litigator for over 20 years. In addition to a number of other publications, she recently published The Introverted Lawyer: A Seven-Step Journey Toward Authentically Empowered Advocacy and Untangling Fear in Lawyering: A Four-Step Journey Toward Powerful Advocacy. Inspired by her own experience conquering the fear of public speaking during her litigation career, she is passionate about helping law students and lawyers “find their authentic lawyer voices”, overcome anxiety, and make the most of their individual strengths.
