Leadership Skills That Improve Advocacy

Tech tipsComputer Tricks

Lawyers speak for others.  But, we actually do not get paid to speak for others. We get paid to have people listen to us and agree with us.  Advocacy is the essential leadership skill.  You need to know your subject matter. You need to know your audience and how they think.  You need to know which facts help your case and which hurt it.  You need to know how what you say will be received by your audience because you do not get a second chance.  You need to secure and maintain the confidence of your client, the opposing counsel, the Court, and the jury.  And you need to know all of the legal procedural and substantive law that impacts your matter.  This takes leadership skills and improving your leadership skills will improve your ability to be an effective advocate.
