ANNOUNCEMENTS

People skills have a huge impact on job satisfaction, client service, success, leadership, and even the public’s perception of lawyers. Indeed, studies of outstanding performers in almost every field suggest that their “emotional quotient” (EQ) is twice as important as their cognitive abilities. In law, your EQ is even more critical. Find out what you can do to raise your EQ in the LCA Partners in Practice Program, “Emotional Intelligence:  Key to Excellence for Law Students and Young Lawyers”, Wednesday, April 11, from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. in Room 138.
