Law Society 'Complete Lawyer' session at IPLS

Law Society Psychological Services has partnered with the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) in Queen's University Belfast to deliver an introductory session on The Complete Lawyer course.

The course, which originated in Blackhall Place Law School, introduces the concept of the ‘third pillar of professionalism’, which addresses the importance of psychological development in lawyers.

The introductory lecture at the IPLS, given by Law Society Psychological Services, was delivered this week (17 January) to 155 IPLS trainees.

Psychological toolkit

A peer-to-peer interaction workshop, facilitated by both members of Law Society Psychological Services and IPLS faculty tutors, allowed attendees to identify the key psychological characteristics of a lawyer, and the internal development and capacities required for successful professional practice.

Trainees are supported to build their own psychological toolkit, which supports personal and professional wellbeing for professional practice. 

The overarching aim of The Complete Lawyer course is to harness the power and potential of trainee solicitors for enhanced learning, well-being and success, both personally and professionally.
