Interculturally of Counsel Podcast
About This Show
The aim of this podcast is to raise the awareness of legal professionals of the need for intercultural competence in their daily practice. Regardless of whether one works in a law firm, for a government agency, in a company, or as a sole practitioner, the globalized world in which we live requires us to interact with clients, colleagues, companies and government entities from other cultures. An awareness of our own cultural imprint along with the ability to recognize the cultural patterns of others can go a long way to improving how we work together. Listen to interviews with experienced legal professionals working in different capacities around the world to learn what tips they can give practitioners for improving how they work and communicate with other cultures in the legal context.
