This is one of the modules that comes under the Practice Skills category of elective modules, which form a part of The University of Law’s offering for the Professional Skills Course.
How long does it take to study this module?
Like the other elective modules that make up the course, Advanced Communication Skills is a one-day training session taught over a total of six hours, and can be picked in combination with another three of those offered by this provider.
What skills will I develop through this module?
The training itself looks to improve your communication skills in different professional environments in the scope of legal work, whether that’s inside the office with colleagues or with your clients. This will cover thinking, decision-making, and communication skills.
In this course, you’ll be acquainted with a level of neuroscience and psychology in order to analyse different subjects and understand the importance of emotional and social intelligence in communication.
What else will I learn?
You’ll also explore the dynamics of communication and its impact in groups, as well as the key role that authority plays on human behaviour as well as non-verbal communication.
These components will contribute to a better understanding of how, as a solicitor, you can more effectively communicate ideas and present propositions in a persuasive manner, by using a range of techniques to your advantage.
