THE SKILLS AND QUALITIES NEEDED TO BE A LAWYER


There are several skills and qualities needed to be a competent and effective lawyer. Regardless of the law firm you are employed by these skills form the foundations of a successful career.

In no particular order of priority, the skills and qualities of a competent lawyer include:

  • Excellent communication skills both in writing, email, and orally.

(You must be articulate in your communication style and be a good listener, too.)

  • Analytical and critical thinking skills.

(A good lawyer can quickly analyse information and make sound judgements based on facts and evidence.)

  • Confidence and resilience.

(Lawyers are faced with challenging situations on a daily basis and you will only overcome these with a determined and resilient mindset.)

  • Researching capabilities.

(Although paralegals and legal assistants will conduct the majority of research on your behalf, you will still be required to research legal cases, facts, and evidence to make informed decisions and judgements.)

Other skills and qualities needed to be a competent and effective lawyer include interpersonal skills, perseverance and determination, creativity, and excellent inductive and deductive reasoning abilities. Finally, as a lawyer you must be passionate about continuous learning and development so that your knowledge of law and law firm practices is kept relevant and up-to-date.

THE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF A LAWYER (LAWYER JOB DESCRIPTION)

The main duty of a lawyer is to represent his or her clients during the legal process and advise them on their current situation. You will be required to represent and advise individuals, companies, and organizations during a wide range of legal situations including small disputes through to complex and comprehensive cases in law. At all times, it will be your duty as a lawyer to act in the client’s best interests whilst adhering to the values and principles of the law firm you are employed by.

The duties and responsibilities of a lawyer are varied. For example, one day you might be representing a large organization in court, and the next, finalising divorce papers. Depending on the law firm you are working for, and your chosen area of specialism, your duties will include:

  • Creating and drawing up legal documents.
  • Carrying out research in preparation for legal cases and court attendance.
  • Analysing information and evidence.
  • Attending court hearings.
  • Outlining the law and the legal situation your clients are faced with.
  • Negotiating and settling disputes before they go to court.
  • Liaising with and supervising paralegals and legal assistants to ensure case workloads are managed effectively in line with struct timelines.
