Abstract
This article is one of seven articles in a 2012 Santa Clara Law Review volume focusing on leadership education for lawyers and law students. "Leary Davis provides a comprehensive look at proper construction of competence by lawyers in performing their work as lawyers," writes Dean Donald Polden. In this article, "Professor Davis argues that the proper definition of professional competence is 'situationally appropriate conduct' and he identifies two models of professional competence--one legal and one based on leadership--to more fully understand how we construct concepts of lawyers' competence."
