This article is a form of exercise that focuses on two kinds of skills: transferable and legal skills. It will provide you with a sense of the degree to which you feel competent in your skills and the degree to which you enjoy utilizing various skills.

INSTRUCTIONS: For each skill listed, rate yourself on the following scale.
Transferable Lawyering Skills
r /> 4 = Very Confident in your ability 3 = Competent in your ability 2 = Cautious about your ability 1 = Can't Assess
To adjust for the enjoyment level, add the value of 1 if a high level of satisfaction or pleasure is associated with the performance of the listed skill; subtract the value of 1 if you dislike using the skill. If you neither like nor dislike the skill, no adjustment is necessary. Record your totals for the various skill cluster areas.
