YoungLawyersWhat makes a good lawyer? What are the qualities that are really indispensable for us as attorneys? What really defines our profession and distinguishes it from any other profession? Panelists have been requested to deep dive into their experience, elaborate and focus on just one quality that they believe is the most important for successfully conducting this profession. Is it preparation, is it precision, is it curiosity? Or something else? The session will enable participants to reflect on what the profession is today, where it is going and what are the distinctive features that will always be there, in spite of any new challenges. The session is intended to be the first of a series of inspiring meetings with colleagues who have the desire to share their views on the profession.
