In this groundbreaking book, Randall Kiser presents a multi-disciplinary, practice-based introduction to the major soft skills for lawyers: self-awareness, self-development, social proficiency, wisdom, leadership, and professionalism. The work serves as both a map and a vehicle for developing the skills essential to self-knowledge and fulfillment, organizational respect and accomplishment, client satisfaction and appreciation, and professional improvement and distinction. It identifies the most important soft skills for attorneys, describes and applies hundreds of studies regarding psychology, law, and soft skills, and provides concrete steps and methods to improve soft skills. The book should be read by law students, attorneys, and anyone else interested in how lawyers should practice law.

In The Press

'Any objective reading of this book would conclude that legal education has been scooped by Randall Kiser. Building upon his prior research on why some trial lawyers consistently outperform others, Kiser has delved deeper into the component parts of lawyer success. Soft Skills for the Effective Lawyer creates a simplifying and unifying framework that ties together research from a wide array of disciplines, and then places these insights into a practical format for lifetime self-improvement. In addition to applying Soft Skills to my own professional life, I am building a curriculum around this book. History will judge Kiser and Soft Skills as part of a major breakthrough in changing legal education for the better.' William Henderson, Professor and Stephen F. Burns Chair on the Legal Profession, Indiana University Maurer School of Law
