Improv4Lawyers is a legal education and consulting firm that provides Florida Bar approved Continuing Legal Education programs. We are dedicated to providing lawyers with fun, interactive courses designed to facilitate effective communications skills, using the principles of applied improv. Applied improv is an old concept that utilizes the methodology of thinking-on-your-feet and applies it to every day life, increasing an individual’s potential to be a more effective and dynamic communicator. Numerous articles on the benefits of studying improv identify the ability to improve verbal communication response time and to do so more impactfully. Improv can improve workplace morale and relieve stress and anxiety. Performing improv can even burn calories (okay, we made that one up, but it is probably true since you move around while performing).Read More

I had been a practicing lawyer for a number of years before coming under Jen’s tutelage, however, under her guidance and training I was able to reach my full potential. Jen is an excellent lawyer and teacher. Her ‘woosh’ game really helped me recognize objections and improved my courtroom skills.
Jennifer’s presentations are educational and entertaining. She is polished, powerful and persuasive. Her programs take professional growth to the next level through humor and innovative training that deﬁnitely works!
As a new attorney, Jennifer Strouf taught me how to find the answers to my questions through case conferencing, critical thinking, and guided research. I am a much more complete and thorough attorney in my practice now thanks to the time she was my trainer.
Jenn Strouf was an amazing trainer for me. As an experienced attorney but one inexperienced in the particular area of law where Jenn was my chief, she actively integrated new knowledge and perspective into familiar points of reference. She nudged me gently and made me a better and more diversiﬁed attorney. She took a wholistic view of me and everyone else in our division, balancing and overlapping the professional and the personal. She taught but was open to learn. She showed me that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
Jennifer, you interact very well with your audience and your method of teaching is usually very creative. You think outside the box. You are a trailblazer !
