Master class on key lawyer skills at KEUK


On March 15, Karaganda Economic University of Kazpotrebsoyuz hosted a master-class on Top 10 key lawyer skills held by the Kazybekbiy District Court Judge of the city of Karaganda Zhanara Smagulova.

Students had an opportunity to learn about a number of key skills crucial for a legal representative:

1. Eloquence. While a lawyer should by all means be a skilled speaker, it is also important for legal representatives to be able to hear and listen to his or her clients, opponents and judges.

2. Writing skills. Competent, clear and comprehensible writing is one of the crucial skills for a professional lawyer.

3. Client skills. A lawyer should be experienced in working with clients and display developed communication skills (both oral and written).

4. Proficiency in searching, analysing and logical reasoning. Legal representatives deal with vast amounts of complicated data, which is in most cases presented in a very specific language.

5. Case study. In the broadest sense, it is about analysing legal issues and finding ways to address them by studying legislative acts, case law, judicial opinions, statutes, regulations and other information.

6. Technology.

7. Being aware of fundamental laws and legal procedures.

8. Time management. In a profession that is based on the "pay per hour" business model and links productivity with financial gain, lawyers constantly find themselves under pressure of time.

9. Organisation. A skill useful in handling group, department and company operations.

10. Team work. Lawyers do not work in a vacuum. Even if a legal representative is working solo, they will have to relay on their office managers and supporting staff, as well as communicate with advisors and experts.

Shakarim State University of Semey had a productive week. The University introduced courses on Business Ethics, Effective Communications and Critical Thinking in the framework of COMPLETE.

The Rupublic of Kazahstan adopted the Strategic Development Plan up to the year 2025. The Plan identifies ongoing and anticipated world trends, including globalisation, development of information technologies and interdisciplinary areas, as well as castomisation (client-oriented approach). These trends will be on the fast track and shall require quick adapting measures to be implemented on the part of universities.

In the setting of technological developments, the labour market is undergoing dynamic changes, transforming so as to accommodate digitalisation trends. This obviously means that ever higher demands are placed on expert training. Graduates need 21st century skills that shall be later on applied in their professional life. The rapidly changing environment and global technologies create new professions, while other (“retired”) professions recede into the past. Following these trends, the very nature of education is being modified. A contemporary graduate will have to exercise critical thinking and networking skills, be creative and team-oriented, be able to address challenges and participate in the decision-making process. These are the key sought-for features of today’s graduates, and EU Erasmus+ KA2 projects are very much helpful in addressing the corresponding strategic tasks.

Narxoz University held a grand opening of CCED on September, 18 in the framework of COMPLETE.

This research can be used in annual syllabus review in order to modernise the university’s educational programmes. On the other hand, the CCED will also offer training workshops for students and develop the skills they are going to need in their professional life, as well as during career searching. The workshops will be held by certified COMPLETE staff having undergone training in project partner countries (Germany, Greece, Slovenia).

The training programme for the current semester comprises 15 topics. The CCED is also planning to host students’ and teachers’ meetings with guest speakers.
