This chapter discusses the general skills for employment that the student will develop while studying law. It will also focus on some of the more specific ‘legal’ skills they will acquire. General skills are true transferable skills. This means that they are applicable in most, if not all, spheres of employment. These include collaboration/teamwork, problem solving, researching (hardcopy and digital) and referencing, decision making, time management, project management; and oral, written and digital communication. Subject-specific skills are the employability skills that are relevant to specific types of employment or academic subjects. These include advocacy, negotiation skills, client interviewing, letter writing, and legal research.
