Law students benefit from developing accounting, business, computer skills

August 20, 2018

While pure law courses have historically been viewed as the best way to prepare lawyers for managing clients’ affairs, young students and corporate lawyers can differentiate themselves and become more efficient lawyers by developing skills from other areas, writes Sandra Rubin. Rubin discusses the value of pursuing learning in areas such as finance, business management, and computing, all of which enable new law students to be more efficient in their workplace and differentiate themselves. Rubin solicits the views of a number of working lawyers who highlight the value of new lawyers who can bring financial knowledge to cases such as shareholder disputes, management to leadership and team positions, and coding and computer skills for preparing for upcoming changes in technology. Lexpert
