Why is empathy important for Lawyers?



Are ‘Cold and clinical’ lawyers making vulnerable clients’ problem worse? – for this article by The Law Society Gazette Society, please see https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/cold-and-clinical-lawyers-making-vulnerable-clients-problem-worse/5112841.article


The Law Society Gazette recently highlighted research from The Legal Services Board that found vulnerable clients' problems can be made worse because of lawyers acting in a ‘cold, clinical or chaotic’ manner.


They also found that some lawyers failed to set and manage expectations, used technical terms and jargon, and showed a lack of empathy and compassion. This was particularly prevalent where clients had experienced traumatic issues. The research echoed existing evidence that people are inherently vulnerable when they approach a lawyer, and that working with legal professionals is particularly hard for those in certain situations.
