Course Overview

As a legal practitioner, it goes without saying that you must be able to communicate clearly and effectively, orally and in writing.

To master legal communication skills, as per domain C of the SRA Competence Statement, you must be able to identify the “most appropriate method and style of communication for the situation and the recipient(s).”

While e-communications have brought massive advantages in terms of speed and convenience, remember ‘people buy people’. Excellent legal communication skills are paramount; Not only will they help you stand out from the competition, being able to connect effectively with others that will enhance your professionalism is crucial.

This bite-size session will examine the fundamentals of communication and viewers will be encouraged to consider other people’s thinking preferences and the effect which this has on communication. Guidance will be offered in terms of how to identify these preferences moving forwards and how develop the fundamental people skills necessary to improve the effectiveness of your communication.
