Kieith Lee for Above the Law wrote that “The ability to read people and respond to their emotional states in real time is an essential skill for an attorney. Yet they are largely neglected in law schools. The focus is on pure analytical analysis and logical reasoning”
Here at A&M Law we have the Professional Development Series, which I believe plays a role in developing our EQ as students here. But for those students who may be stuck in a world where your EQ is shadowed behind your GPA, we hope to provide some tips to develop that soon!
