We're creating a set of tools for legal professionals who want to chart a course for thriving in the 21st century, based on the Delta Model for Lawyer Competency and using human-centered design principles.
Starting with a set of PLAYLISTS — resources organized by PEOPLE - PROCESS - PRACTICE, to help you read, listen, watch, and do — and build your Delta Model competencies.
And next up? PLAYBOOKS for making the Delta Model actionable. Customized for law students, law schools, law firms, legal departments, and individual legal professionals.
Tools will be customized to a range of legal professionals — from law students to mid-career lawyers to allied legal professionals — as well as for a myriad of purposes, from career planning to hiring to assessment.
If you're interested in using Design Your Delta tools individually or for your organization, we would love to talk with you. Join the DYD Listor contact us about DYD coaching and we'll be in touch!
In this podcast episode of Zooming Through Law School, Alyson and Cat talk with Chris Meyers, Assistant Dean of Students at Vanderbilt Law School, about the importance of the Delta Model as a holistic framework for identifying and building competencies, and why it's so relevant in these pandemic times.
This article by Alyson Carrel explains how the Delta Model has the potential to help our profession recognize that legal professionals must broaden their skill set beyond “thinking like a lawyer,” as well as reimagine how students apply for law school, get hired, take the bar, and progress in their careers — without suffering from the structural racism currently baked into the system.
The Delta Model working group contributed this post to Bill Henderson's Legal Evolution blog. The post offers an overview of the Model along with its applicability to various points along the legal profession spectrum, from law students to mid-career lawyers to legal employers.
