Tech and innovation initiatives are quite useless without the proper soft skills in the mix. As legal service continues to evolve, soft skills are becoming increasingly important for driving innovation to success.
Legal Network of Sweden, together with Maigon - Sweden’s leading legal AI company - invite you to join us exploring soft skills that can propel your innovation initiatives to success. Here’s three soft skills for tomorrow’s lawyers:
● Creativity: By being open to new ideas, one can gain entirely new ways of /dealing with legal issues. To take advantage of technological capabilities is key to success in the evolving legal market. Alan Kay, a computer scientist from Silicon Valley once said: “the best way to predict the future is to invent it”. This is a powerful message to future lawyer’s.
● Adaptability: The ability to adapt to changing environments and learn new skills is essential for lawyers to stay ahead of the curve and continuously innovate in a rapidly-evolving legal landscape. Unless you adapt, your legal business might fail..
● Communication: Being able to effectively communicate ideas and embrace social networking is crucial for legal teams. Only when collaborating with others as a team, we can shape innovative solutions to complex problems.
In conclusion, soft skills are the foundation of legal innovation. Without them, even the most cutting-edge legal technology can only take us so far.
The future of legal services is waiting to unfold. As never before, there is a great opportunity to be involved in shaping the next generation of legal services. Instead of hanging on to traditional ways of working, we urge you to increase your awareness of different soft skills, as they will be more important to forge new paths for the way legal is carried out.
