Hi There,

As far as being a lawyer is concerned, Interpersonal skills are the least important skill they require at their work level.

But when it comes to a corporate lawyer, who is mainly involved in Business dealings, negotiation with clients, advising their clients about future investments and outcomes, as well as predicting future liabilities of an investment.

All the above roles need Good communication skills.
So if communication is a part of interpersonal skills, then Yes, it is essential.

Wish you good luck............

A person who has taken an formal education of law was allowed to practise law as a Lawyer in the Courts.There were only civil and criminal cases that a lawyer used to deal with. But with the development and openings to various new fields this has given a room for the need to set up the legal departments or need for lawyers.

In every corporate company it is an obligation now to have a law department with the panel of qualified lawyers to deal with the various legal related issues of the company.

A corporate lawyer is a person who looks out for all the legal matters of the company and keep a track of the same.A corporate lawyer must have an interest in solving the various business matters like complex business agreements, business agreements etc. While in order to be at the peak of the career one should hold a good knowledge of Contract Laws,Intellectual Property Rights,Tax and Securities Law and other business related laws.
