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............

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.
