Regardless of where you are in your career, you will be expected to have good customer service skills.
This is an extensive client communication training program that focuses on customer service excellence and quality communication with focus on overcoming communication barriers. Due to globalization and the widespread reliance on technology the legal landscape is experiencing rapid change. Legal organizations are beginning to open practices and offices in other countries. It’s important for paralegal's to understand how important communication is to their careers.

Some paralegals mistakenly assume that their technical ability or other skill sets will be their key to success, but without solid communication skills, the others become much less valuable.
