Delta Competency Model Sees Entrepreneurial Mindset & Adaptability as Top Lawyer Skills

Originally from Thomson Reuters’ Legal Executive Institute

The legal education and professional development markets remain largely behind the times for providing the skills, training, and competencies required for lawyers to be successful in the 21st century, especially amid a legal market that continues to undergo tremendous change. Fortunately, however, more and more legal institutions are talking about this skills gap and investing in more opportunities to offer access to these skills.

In a new white paper, Adapting for 21st Century Success: The Delta Lawyer Competency Model, by Natalie Runyon, Director of Enterprise Content Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute, and Alyson Carrel, Clinical Associate Professor of Law and Assistant Director for the Center on Negotiation and Mediation at the Pritzker School of Law at Northwestern University, we examine the Delta Model and what it shows about 21st century skill competencies for lawyers.
