Formatted abstract
This research presents an interpretative approach towards the field of competence. Unlike past research, which has been of a positivist nature, this study attempts to conceptualise competence in the legal profession, by interviewing lawyers on their understanding of their daily work and their views more generally on law as an occupation. One workgroup in a large corporate law firm was focused on, within this group eight lawyers were interviewed. This research provided evidence to suggest that there exists no agreed upon definition of competence in the workgroup. Instead the conceptualisation of competence is dependent on the industry, the firm and the individual.
