I recently attended a program on cultural competence for lawyers only to confirm a fear: It turns out, I am not very culturally competent. Apparently, I am not alone, and many lawyers are not as savvy as we should be when it comes to interacting with people from different cultures.

The program was presented by Terri Mottershead, a lawyer/professional development guru, who edited the recently released book, “The Art and Science of Strategic Talent Management in Law Firms” (West 2010). Mottershead, relying on 27 years of international law experience including practicing and teaching law in the United States, Australia and Hong Kong, is helping lawyers learn about the importance of cultural competence.
