We’ve all heard these refrains many times: “Know your audience.” “Put yourself in your client’s shoes.” “Define what ‘win’ means.” “Know when to push back.” Etc. Etc. So much of what we do as lawyers depends not only on being emotionally intelligent, but on being strategically and tactically thoughtful about where the intellectual, rationale brain and the gut-felt, impassioned brain meet and diverge. There are no human-behavior or psychology classes in law school. There should be. We’ll discuss how considering the hearts and minds of colleagues, clients, opposing counsel, and judges when practicing law inevitably make us all better advocates and counselors.
