Well-rounded

I recently attended an insurance industry group conference. My ears perked up when one of the speakers, a CEO of an insurer, discussed the importance of reading about the wider, non-insurance world. I enjoyed hearing someone suggest that there’s a place for those who enjoy learning the outside world. 

Certainly, the legal profession rewards those who live and breathe their work. Within the profession, the trend seems to be for people to focus on a particular niche. I understand the importance of lawyers to become experts on a topic. But it’s foolish to think the legal profession can supply  all of the answers. There’s value to people applying concepts from other disciplines.
