INSIGHT Law Professional Skills and Mindset


INSIGHT Law Professional is a comprehensive two part assessment calibrated to measure the professional mindset and reasoning skills of professional law practitioners and public policy officials.

Every good attorney can assemble the facts of a case, determine evidentiary burden, and argue the case based on statutes and precedents. Superior legal minds can anticipate the opposition, expose flaws in their case, and execute a successful legal process with exquisite time sensitivity. These attorneys bring the strong mindset and reasoning skills needed for a distinguished legal career.

New hires who lack reasoning skills and the desired legal mindset will prove to be disappointing to their firms, regardless of their glowing references, or claims they might make about their own achievements.

INSIGHT Law Professional is a complete on-the-job solution. It objectively assesses not only critical thinking skills but also the mental disciplines that are the foundation of making reasoned decisions. This dual assessment provides valuable reliable metrics for the pre-screening evaluations of new employees and for ongoing staff development programs focused on strengthening competencies.

Mental Disciplines Assessed

INSIGHT Law Professional Part One assesses the mental disciplines that are valued in the practice of law. Questions have been designed to measure the mindset attributes that impact how individual decisions are made. INSIGHT Law Professional helps identify individuals who demonstrate:

  • Intellectual Integrity
  • Cognitive Maturity
  • Mental Focus
  • Mental Rigor

Reasoning Skills Assessed

  • Problem Analysis
  • Evaluating Alternatives
  • Precise Contexts
  • Ambiguous Contexts
  • Quantitative Contexts

Data Reported

INSIGHT Law Professional assessment reports analyze strengths and weaknesses in the legal mindset attributes and reasoning skills demonstrated to be predictive of a successful legal professional.
