2 minutes • 27 Nov 23


In-House Legal Tip:  Getting better means actively looking for ways to improve. Taking time to do so as in-house counsel is difficult given constant busyness. 

Regularly reviewing your performance as an in-house lawyer is crucial for both personal and professional growth. In many respects – it is actually a career superpower.

By taking a few minutes each week to consider your own performance you equip yourself with a continuous self-awareness that primes you for spectacular progression.

Regularly identifying the strengths and weaknesses in your legal skills places you in poll position to:

  • stay on top of evolving laws and industry trends
  • develop a proactive approach to professional development
  • more efficiently acquire what you need to address skills gaps and enhance your legal expertise
  • align your work with the strategic aspirations of your legal team/Business.

Given the incredibly dynamic environment that in-house team are operating the skill of constant self-reflection is increasingly important.

So, take 5 minutes a week and ask yourself:

  • how you are getting on?
  • what did you do really well?
  • what were you not happy with?
  • what new skills would help you
  • are there changes afoot that you need to adapt to.

Then act accordingly.

Great careers do not just happen. They are planned and intentionally brought into existence.  

5 minutes a week on self reflection that leads to positive action will set you apart from 90% of in-house lawyers.
