Abstract

The dismal data on the public’s opinion of lawyers, as well as studies on the personality strengths of those attracted to the law, suggest that law students are not likely to excel in these areas. This section focuses on the need to explicitly train students in these “relational” skills in law school courses.

Keywords: relational skills, legal education
