How can law firms discover high-performing attorneys, even before they're hired? And once brought on board, what can be done to ensure their potential is realized?
Write.Law, the writing, tech, and practice skills training platform for legal professionals, and Suited, the AI-predictive recruiting network for law firms, have partnered to bring together two areas that are central to the progression and modernization of the legal industry;AI-recruiting techniques and legal skills training.
In order to cultivate high functioning practices, firms must embrace two central ideas. First, considering factors beyond traditional credentials is necessary for discovering high-potential candidates.And second, investing in training or upskilling this talent, even directly out of law school, is a modern-day must.
Using predictive analytics, hiring teams are able to expand their recruiting funnels to include more candidates. With a high degree of accuracy, AI-enabled tools can alert you to the candidates who have a high probability of success by identifying the unbiased traits and competencies that drive performance.
Write.Law addresses this “legal skills gap” by working with law students, practicing attorneys, law schools, and law firms to improve the legal acumen of law professionals through legal writing, tech, legal practice, and other areas.
Together, we have identified that a combination of intrinsic characteristics and learned skills can produce highly motivated and trainable attorneys who will take firms to the next level. Our hope
is that firms will conclude great talent can come from anywhere, regardless of background, grades, or law school rank - it’s simply a matter of identifying the candidates who possess the raw talent to succeed, and adequately upskilling them to become allstar attorneys.
