Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The study aims to explore relationships between VCs and their lawyers and observe the characteristics of optimal relationships by interviewing both sides and getting their different perspectives. Following analysis of the results, a new concept of professionalism is offered to lawyers, based on implementing the principles of the "use of self" in legal practice and by using professional OT core values and knowledge.
