Law is widely regarded as a highly logical, emotionally detached industry. In some ways, this is true and in some ways, it absolutely is not. An attorney needs to be facts-oriented and thorough when approaching her craft, critical and shrewd when identifying key issues and using them to her clients’ benefits.

Personal connection, fortunately, is a place where female lawyers often shine. Research shows that women “use communication as a tool to enhance social connections and create relationships,” whereas men often focus more on outcomes and asserting dominance. In a legal environment where trust is the key to making and keeping clients, the value of using this feminine trait to define and shape narratives cannot be overstated.
