You have the power to help make the process of legal education and life as an attorney a little bit easier for others that will follow you on the road to becoming a lawyer and practicing law. Learning more about you will help us determine what makes lawyers different from one practice area to the next. Leveraging our understanding of thousands of attorneys will help guide individual law students with course selection and young attorneys in selecting which practice settings might fit best for them. This information will help law firms better mentor, utilize and retain their people, making for stronger firm cultures and more enjoyable workplaces. Together, we can do a lot to help the legal profession, but it all starts with you, now.
What’s in it for you?
First of all, you’ll immediately get a detailed report profiling your distinctive characteristics in the traits that are most important to practicing law. You can use these results to understand your own strengths and how you might play to them. We also provides advice based upon your personality that can help you better interact with clients and colleagues and even aid your business development.
The survey is short – and should take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete. There are no right or wrong answers – just be sure to answer the questions quickly, honestly and in one sitting as you cannot save your answers along the way. You will receive your results the moment you are done, including how you compare to thousands of attorneys in the key traits that define lawyers and their practices.
Who is behind this?
This instrument, the Sheffield Legal Assessment, is the first online assessment purpose-built for the legal profession. It was developed by The Right Profile (known for their work with professional sports teams) and a team of psychologists in Chicago. It is based on methodologies and technology that have been in use for years and have been proven effective in a variety of industries, including professional sports and the military. Additionally, both JD Match (known for connecting law firms with candidates in an orderly, efficient way unavailable anywhere else) and Adam Smith Esq. (a provider of high-end consulting services to law firms and the legal profession globally) are sponsoring this study.
So what are you waiting for?
