What skills do new lawyers need now?

Check out this article in abajournal.com reporting on a study by DU’s Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal Profession reporting on the most important skills lawyers need early in their careers.  While the article focuses on early career skills, the study itself is much broader and IAALS’s website lets users search for what’s most important based on specific criteria such as position type, location, years of experience, and more.  The study was conducted by IAALS’s Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers Initiative.
