Dear Aspirant,

As a Corporate Lawyer, apart from excellent domain knowledge about Corporate Law, definitely communication skills will be vital for being a successful lawyer.

In legal parlance, these communication skills are called as "Pleading' skills. Pleading means putting the client case in from the Court Bench in an effective, confident manner.

Apart from the evidences, witnesses, you definitely require communication skills to get the truth, facts out of the case by talking to people, persuading them to speak truth, etc. Witnesses will open up only when they feel confident about you as a Lawyer and here your communication skills along with your personality will matter.

Best wishes
