Andrew Caple-Shaw is a courtroom skills instructor, actor, and licensed attorney. He has over 30 years of experience as a performer ranging from live Shakespeare to shows like The West Wing, Dexter, and NCIS.
While working as an adjunct professor of law he began to experiment with the idea of training lawyers using actor training techniques rather than the traditional methods being used in most law schools. The results of that work and the demand for it led him to leave the practice of law and enter litigation consulting and attorney training full time.
He went on to study under renowned courtroom communications and witness preparation expert Katherine James. He became the first new associate instructor to teach her firm's methods in nearly 40 years.
He now teaches and lectures across the country in firms and for attorney trade associations. He also occasionally still appears in films and represents a small stable of clients in his home state of Tennessee.
