Skills for a successful career in a changing legal market
What are the skills for a successful career in today´s changing legal market? Our Vicedean Soledad Atienza shares her thoughts in this article published in Legal Business World.
The current legal market is going through a time of changes, and one of the consequences is the different skill set that will be necessary for a successful legal career. Two of the main reasons for this change in the legal market are the immersion in technology together with the internationalization of the market, as both of these have a large impact in the competencies that lawyers need to develop to be successful.
In order to understand the most relevant changes in the legal market, it is very useful to take a look at the report published by the International Bar Association (President’s Task Force on the Future of Legal Services by María J. Esteban, researcher, & James M. Klotz, IBA Secretary-General and Task Force Chair).

“Law and art can complement each other as they target different areas of the human psyche”
The Art and International Justice Initiative, Directed by Professor Marina Aksenova, is a hub connecting academics, legal practitioners, students and others wishing to explore the potential of art as a tool to promote or increase understanding of international justice.
Art and International Justice Initiative (ARTIJ) is place for academics, lawyers and artists to meet and explore together the potential of art in promoting the goals of international justice. Legal concepts such as individual criminal responsibility or genocide carry certain analytical meaning within legal framework. These are operational terms but they require additional impetus to gain traction in a wider community and to become meaningful points of reference in the general discourse on international justice. Artistic approach that is both process oriented and experiential can assist in making legal terms and legal findings more relevant to society at large.
“Law and art can complement each other as they target different areas of the human psyche: while law rests on well-defined categories and usually operates in black-and-white categories, art dwells on ambiguity”
