This Article argues that the occupation that produces the nation’s greatest share of leaders needs to do more to prepare them for that role. Attention is long overdue. Over two-thirds of Americans think that the nation has a leadership crisis, and only a small minority have trust in lawyers, particularly those in leadership roles. To promote a deeper understanding of what is lacking, this Article summarizes key insights from contemporary leadership research. Part I explores what is known about the qualities and styles that make for effective leadership. Part II surveys what is known about how lawyers can develop those capabilities. Part III looks at diversity in leadership and describes barriers that stand in the way for women lawyers and lawyers of color. Part IV looks at the legacy of leaders and what can promote their effectiveness.
