These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Law majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Negotiation is very distinctive for majors, but the Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Speaking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Active Learning, Negotiation, Social Perceptiveness, Monitoring, Persuasion, Time Management, Coordination, Service Orientation, Instructing, Learning Strategies, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Management of Personnel Resources, Mathematics, Operations Analysis, Science, Technology Design, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Programming, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Equipment Selection, Installation, Operation and Control, Equipment Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
