Abstract

Law firms and legal departments include teamwork and team leadership skills in their competency models and 30% of law schools have included teamwork in their learning outcomes, but there has been no effort to create a continuum that aligns law student development of teamwork skills with the competency models of law firms. This article provides a model for this continuum for law schools and law firms.

Keywords: Teamwork, Team Leadership, Competency Models
