Are you sure that during law school you have developed all the skills you need to become a successful lawyer?
What about, for example, how you are going to behave in the office and what rules of etiquette you should follow when dealing with partners, associates, trainees and clients?
Every senior lawyer will tell you 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.
Written by a practising City lawyer, Soft Skills for Lawyers contains practical suggestions for lawyers on how to deal with people in every different work situation and covers topics such as verbal and non-verbal communication, body language, business etiquette, marketing, public speaking and time and stress management.
For more junior lawyers, it also contains a section on how to become a partner in your firm, which includes practical suggestions on specialisation, how to relate to partners, how to raise your profile and develop a more resilient, confident and business-focused attitude from the start!
Know what to do and what to say in every work situation and make sure you come across always in the best possible way!
