CALL Webinar - Understanding the Lawyer Personality

Thursday, March 5, 2015
10:00am - 11:30am  
 
Summary:
Lawyers are not like other people--over 20 years of research by Dr. Larry Richard at LawyerBrain shows that the people who become lawyers have a number of very atypical personality traits. In this program, Dr. Richard will explain the unique traits that characterize lawyers, and discuss why these patterns occur as well as how you can adapt to them when you're working with lawyers or when they are your customers. Dr. Richard practiced law for ten years himself, before earning a Ph.D. in psychology in 1993.
