Black Law Students / Soft Skills for Lawyers?????
« on: September 04, 2007, 05:49:50 AM »
Guys

Are we sure that during at law school we are developing all the skills we need to become a successful lawyer?

What about, for example, how we are going to behave in the office and what rules we should follow when dealing with partners, other associates and clients? It seems that the ability to deal with people effectively and politely (also known as ‘soft skills’) is just as important as, if not more important than, technical skills.

A comprehensive book on this topic, called "Soft Skills for Lawyers", has now been published. It is written by a qualified lawyer and is available to buy from www.chelseapublishing.com. A free preview of the book can also be downloaded from that website and I hope it will be of help! :)

Politics and Law-Related News / Soft Skills for Lawyers - how topical?

Guys

Have you noticed that more and more articles are appearing on the legal press about the importance of soft skills for lawyers? By this I mean skills such as verbal and non-verbal communication (including body language), etiquette, delegation & project management, marketing, public speaking and time & stress management.

It is probably true that during law school we do not really develop all the skills we will need in our careers as lawyers. It seems in fact that the ability to deal with people effectively and politely is just as important as, if not more important than, technical skills.

A comprehensive book on this topic, called "Soft Skills for Lawyers", has also been published. It is written by a qualified lawyer and is available to buy from www.chelseapublishing.com. A free preview of the book can also be downloaded from that website and I hope it will be of help!
