Lawyers and Leadership: Raising the Bar

February 10-11, 2017

The legal profession provides a disproportionate number of leaders in American society, everywhere from law firms, to politics, the private sector, and the nonprofit realm. Why do so many lawyers end up in leadership positions? How can lawyers do better in these roles? This Symposium will focus on the role lawyers play as leaders in our society. It will bring together leading practitioners in a variety of fields to reflect on diversity in leadership, pathways to leadership, and leadership training in legal education. Each panel will feature leading lawyers in their field and will be moderated by Stanford Law faculty and legal scholars publishing on these topics in the Law Review.
