Bio

Author Heidi K. Brown is a graduate of The University of Virginia School of Law, an associate law professor at Brooklyn Law School, and a former litigator in the construction industry. Having struggled with extreme public speaking anxiety and the perceived pressure to force an extroverted persona throughout law school and nearly two decades of law practice, she finally embraced her introversion and quiet nature as a powerful asset in teaching and practicing law. She is the author of a two-volume legal writing book series entitled The Mindful Legal Writer, won a Global Legal Skills award for her work in helping law students overcome public speaking anxiety in the context of the Socratic method and oral arguments, and was appointed to the Fulbright Specialist roster to teach English legal writing in international law schools. Heidi champions the power of quiet law students and lawyers to be profoundly impactful advocates, in their authentic voices.
