Frequently Asked Questions

Does improv for lawyers work?2020-12-14T12:57:48-08:00

Yes! And… Haus of Improv’s “Lawyer’s Improv Workshop” teaches the skills you need to be more effective in your work as a lawyer through fun exercises. Although they may seem simple and unrelated, they are purposeful, detailed lessons designed to secretly teach your brain to remember specific rules like building a narrative and active listening.

How can improvisational acting techniques help me as a lawyer?2020-12-16T12:06:00-08:00

The exercises used in our Lawyer’s Improv Workshop have been specially curated to connect to the tools you need to be more effective in the courtroom and beyond. Learning improvisational acting skills can help provide the ability to read the temperament and point-of-view of your listeners and make a seemingly unpredictable environment feel more predictable by mentally slowing down what is happening around you. Improv can give you more confidence in your abilities to react effectively and decisively, giving you the techniques to navigate difficult situations more comfortably by learning to embrace fear and thereby disarm its effects.
