Podcast: Commerciality is king

Podcast: Commerciality is king

Kylie Virtue

This week on The Lawyers Weekly Show, an adjunct lecturer from The College of Law joins us to divulge how law graduates can best prepare for life in practice.

Kylie Virtue reveals to our host, Lawyers Weekly journalist Lara Bullock, how the core competencies required to be a lawyer have evolved over time to include collaboration, emotional intelligence, financial literacy, project management, affinity with technology, and commercial acumen.

Clients now expect commerciality and that their lawyers understand their business, their industry, their regulators and their competitors.

Ms Virtue explains how practical legal training has changed to ensure new lawyers enter the profession with a global mindset, commercial awareness and intellectual rigour.
