This seminar takes a fresh look at U.S. Supreme Court decisions as well as the art of legal persuasion: through the lens of certain fundamental visual art principles from masterpieces of art—which is, after all, a form of visual persuasion. Come learn what the 6 principles of visual art are (design, inspiration, composition, focal point, balance and craftsmanship), how they manifest themselves in both the art and legal worlds sharing important, common principles, and ultimately how, by expanding your viewpoint to look for and appreciate these common principles, you can better understand the art of lawyering and hone your craft.
