Default skills for corp

Should probably qualify that though we're quoting these success stories of with not-the-best grades getting corp TCs,

it's worth mentioning that these guys:
- are still good at legal research and great commercial awareness;
- have attention to detail when drafting docs and are organised with their work;
- are excellent networkers with great eq and social awareness; and
- know their strengths and can play to it (despite any low grades).

so yeah, ymmv

Seconded.

From my interactions, corp people arenít the brightest legal minds most of the time. They are however excellent networkers and have great EQ.
