Course Supervision: Essential Skills for Lawyers


At an increasingly early stage post qualification, associate fee-earners are being asked to ‘manage’ a more junior colleague and his/her work, whether as part of a particular current matter or on a more structured organisational basis. This new responsibility requires the acquisition and use of a fresh set of non-technical skills so that the work of the junior can be supervised effectively and thus directly contribute to the efficiency and profitability of the fee-earning team.

The course is designed to cover the core elements of successful supervisory skills and will deal with the key issues which participants will face when managing a more junior colleague.

  • Supervision – its importance and its place in the management spectrum
  • The regulatory requirements governing supervision
  • Change – dealing with the acquisition of new responsibilities
  • Personalities and learning styles – understanding your juniors and what process works best for developing their competence
  • The supervisor as leader – role, function, and behavioural approaches
  • Coaching – what it involves and how to do it
  • Motivation – understanding the key drivers that will get the best out of your junior
  • Delegation – the core efficiency skill and how to get it right
  • Communication – developing excellent questioning and listening skills
  • Feedback – giving both the good and the not so good news in a positive and progressive manner

The course will be delivered in an interactive and participatory manner which will include group work, plenary feedback, exercises, diagnostics and tutor input as well as dealing with any specific causes of concern raised by participants.

Participants will return to their firms armed with an ability to put into practice the core elements of the course with confidence, and an understanding of how to develop further their role as a successful supervisor.
