Lawyers who can identify what others are actually thinking and feeling have a huge advantage in litigation and negotiations. In this two-part webinar series, you will learn from University of California Professor of Law Clark Freshman practical, scientifically validated techniques to spot split-second microexpressions and other clues of emotion.

Through Professor Freshman’s instruction and by viewing pictures and videos from actual trials, mediations, news clips, and studies which he conducted at Harvard Business School, you will learn how to:

  • Use microexpressions to succeed at negotiations
  • Use microexpressions at trial and in depositions
  • Read other clues from voice, speech, and body language

Part One: Microexpressions: The Science of Reading Emotions
January 28th, 2016, 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM, ET

In Part One, you will learn the science behind reading emotions through split-second microexpressions, including:
  • Why even small changes in emotion affect your success
  • The simple split-second movement shown by science to predict divorce–and possibly your next lost client or malpractice claim
  • How to distinguish “smiles” that signal liking–rather than mask anger, or even lies
  • How scientists proved facial emotions are the same across cultures–and which other emotional clues differ
  • How to interpret emotions–rather than misreading them as “tells”
