INFLUENCE OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE ON THE PERFORMANCE OF COLLEGE LAW TEACHERS
The emotional intelligence is the the ability to monitor one's own and other people's emotions, to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour. This paper aims to ascertain the influence of emotional intelligence on the performance of college law teachers. The research data were collected through a questionnaire survey on college law teachers from two provinces in eastern China. During the survey, each question was scored by the Likert 5-point scale. The survey results were subjected to multiple regression analysis. The results show that female lawyers have higher emotional intelligence than their male counterparts; all four dimensions of emotional intelligence have positive impacts on the performance of college law teachers; the emotional intelligence of college law teachers should be improved through group psychological counselling, case analysis and experience exchange. The research results are of great significance to the law education in colleges.
