What exactly do law firms want in their new hires? A survey asking law firm practice chairs, hiring partners and recruiters about the things law schools could do to better prepare students for law firm life provides some concrete answers: business acumen, a greater focus on global issues, management skills and the ability to write well. While the survey targeted law schools, its results can provide some insight for attorneys seeking law firm jobs or those who want to succeed in the job they have.
