Week 2 Summary
Further stepsStart compiling a skills assessment to help you identify which skills you already have and how you will develop them further.
- Make a list of the skills we have learnt about this week and any other skills you think would be relevant for a career in law.
- Identify specific examples of where you have already used them.
- Now rate your level of experience in those skills
- For those skills that you feel you need to develop further, put together an action plan for how you will do so. For instance for public speaking skills, you could set yourself a task to deliver a short presentation to a group of fellow students or work colleagues to build up your confidence in speaking to groups of people.
Next weekIn Week 3 of this course we will look at what the legal sector is really like, focusing on the diversity of the workforce and the support available to people working in law.
