“Sure wish I’d had this when I was looking at law school!”
Before spending three years of your life in law school, and many more years paying off student loans……take the Sheffield Legal Assessment to see how well & where you fit (if at all) in the legal profession.
Plenty of personality assessments can tell you about your attributes. Only the Sheffield Legal Assessment measures all the relevant underlying traits and compares each one of them to those of successful practicing attorneys.
Here is an example of what you’ll see:
Click below to see a sample report from a real attorney that took our assessment (we changed his name to protect his identity). He focuses his law practice on corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and venture capital. As shown in our report, he looks a lot like the other attorneys that are satisfied with their work in this area of the law.
Here is a second sample report from an attorney that spent a couple of years practicing before finding a career outside of law firm life. He is happier now, and would have known years earlier had ShouldIBeALawyer.com been available when he was starting his legal career. Read his report.
You need to make a good decision, and the Sheffield is the only assessment that can provide this attorney profile data.
How It Works
The Sheffield Legal Assessment measures 22 traits that were identified through extensive academic research and focus groups with law firms and other legal employers to be critical to success in the business and practice of law. Additionally, it examines 8 cognitive functions to learn one’s mindset and behavioral preferences. The assessment is taken online and takes 30-minutes to complete. The results are immediately available upon completion in the form of the Should I Be A Lawyer report and can be accessed online in the future through a secure login.
Thousands of lawyers have taken the Sheffield Legal Assessment since its launch in 2014. Many took it as part in our sponsored Attorney Trait Study and others took it (and continue to take it) as part of a service subscribed to by the law firm or organization for which they work. These results, combined with each individual lawyer’s provided work setting history, law practice areas and corresponding satisfaction with each, contributed to the development of dozens of lawyer profiles. Our profiles are both general (which profiles are generally successful and happy in law, and vice-versa) and specific (which profiles show high satisfaction with specific work settings and law practice areas). More details about the process of creating these profiles is available in our white paper, Assessing Lawyer Traits and Finding a Fit for Success.
With these profiles in place, we are able to instantly run an analysis of your results on the Sheffield Legal Assessment to measure your match or “fit” to each profile relating to various aspects of a career in law. The Right Profile’s patent-pending talent analytics engine can scientifically predict your propensity for a successful and satisfying career in law and even suggest work settings and law practice areas that are a good fit for you.
