We leverage the power of thousands of attorney trait profiles, instantly, to provide career guidance to law students and attorneys that has never before been available.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 30, 2015
A successful law school experience requires years of dedication and costs tens of thousands of dollars or more in tuition and other fees, but even so, the path to a successful career as an attorney is far from secure as law school graduate numbers far outpace the number of available attorney jobs. Worse, a lack of tools to help graduates understand what practice areas or settings might be a good fit for them has led to a high degree of dissatisfaction amongst young attorneys and high turnover costs for law firms. Recent studies suggest a $9.5 billion combined annual turnover cost for the top 400 law firms in the United States and an annual law firm attorney attrition rate in excess of 17%. Multiple national surveys also show that roughly half of all lawyers would not choose to go into law if they had the chance to make the decision over again and 57% of lawyers leave law firms altogether before their 5th year of practice.
Known for their work helping high-profile professional sports teams evaluate and develop athletic talent, The Right Profile is now focusing its predictive analytics on the legal industry to help solve these problems. As part of a suite of tools designed to meet the many needs for guidance, development and vetting of prospective law students, current law students, practicing attorneys, law firms and legal departments, The Right Profile is announcing a suite of Legal Career Insight tools at AttorneyAssessment.com to help law students and attorneys find their best fit in legal practice areas and practice settings based upon their individual mental makeup.
According to Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Sterling Bates, “the legal industry needs serious help, and we seem to be the only company with the necessary data and analytics to help determine an individual’s potential fit and likelihood of success for a career in law.” The company’s Legal Career Insight tools at AttorneyAssessment.com leverage the data that The Right Profile gathered in 2014 and 2015 in the world’s largest online attorney trait study using the company’s proprietary Sheffield Legal Assessment. From there, the company ran similar analytics to those that help professional sports teams draft top talent. Bates continues, “We now understand more about “fit” for the profession of law, individual practice areas and practice settings than any other individual or company in the world. We leverage the power of thousands of attorney trait profiles, instantly, to provide career guidance to law students and attorneys that has never before been available.” The Right Profile expects to partner with numerous law school career services department and bar review companies in 2016 to increase the visibility of its products and ensure that the tools at AttorneyAssessment.com are available for law students and attorneys everywhere. Bates concludes with “a new history of career satisfaction for attorneys starts today.”
