Empowered by Effective Empathy

By: AltaClaro | Published: Apr 06, 2018

The ability to put yourself in another's shoes—to see the world through their eyes—may be the most valuable skill a lawyer can develop. In this episode, commercial and employment litigator Alice Jump (Partner, Reavis Page Jump LLP) sat down with Ascension to share how her path, from an inspiring childhood education to BigLaw in the 1980s, in-house in the 90s, and now boutique law firm leadership, has instilled in her an appreciation for empathy as an invaluable advocacy and business development tool.
