The Legal Business Leaders Roundtable

Roundtable Report Overview

"In an industry of 70,000 there is a need for young lawyers to differentiate themselves."

Legal advisors are now expected to think like business people and to be business partners who understand the drivers of the commercial world. They must have emotional intelligence, negotiate, collaborate, manage relationships and solve problemsLawyers often call these qualities ‘soft’ skills, but they are the tools needed to navigate a hard commercial world, and to stay relevant and competitive in an evolving industry. 

It is against this background that the College of Law brought together some of the best minds in the legal services industry to discuss the impact of modern commercial realities on the industry.
