As a law student, you hear lots of advice about the “soft skills” that you need to be cultivating along with your legal skills. These skills are often the deal-makers or the deal-breakers when employers are making hiring decisions. The Office of Career Strategy & Employment works individually with each student on identifying and developing these skills. We also love to share other resources that offer great advice on this topic.
Over at the Law School Toolbox blog, a recent post highlighted three top skills – project management, being details savvy, and being resilient – and provided practical action items you can undertake as part of your legal study to develop these skills. It’s a great 5-minute read. Find the post here.
