Have you tried to take the following test??
It is based on case studies from "Soft Skills for Lawyers". I thought it was a stupid test at first but actually it seems to me that it makes a lot of sense and can really help a lot!! The answers to the questions are on www.chelseapublishing.com
Question #1: Showing confidence to partners
You are discussing a case with a partner in their office and the telephone rings. The partner answers the phone and starts talking with the caller, without giving you any indication as to whether the call will be long. What should you do?
A) Attract the partner's attention with a gesture and query whether you should go and come back later.
B) Try to make eye contact with the partner and query whether you should go and come back later.
C) Remain where you are and show that you’re interested in the call.
D) Remain where you are and start pretending to review your papers and notes so as to show that you have something to do while he is speaking.
Question #2: Choosing the Right Seat
You enter a meeting room and find a dozen of people sitting around a large table. Your firm’s partner and an associate are sitting at one side of the table and you notice there are two free seats where you could possibly seat: one is next to the associate and the other is next to the partner. The seat next to the partner is at the head of the table. Where should you sit?
A) Next to the associate. It is impolite to sit at the head of a table unless invited to do so.
B) Next to the partner. There is nothing wrong in sitting at the head of the table.
Question #3: Automobile etiquette
The cab you called to take you and two senior lawyers from your firm to a meeting has just arrived. As you approach the cab, you wonder who among your party should enter the car first and where you should sit.
A) You should invite colleagues to enter the cab first and let them choose the seat that they prefer.
B) Since you called the cab, you should enter first and sit behind the driver so that you can easily give them instructions.
C) There are no rules of etiquette governing this situation. You shouldn’t worry about who should enter the car first and where you should sit.
