Why We Need to Teach Leadership Now More Than Ever

Grit, Growth Mindset, and Training Tomorrow’s Leaders
Date: Thursday, March 25, 2021
Time: 3:30 PM EDT 

Join Elizabeth M. Fraley, Stephen Rispoli, and Leah W. Teague for a discussion on training tomorrow's leaders today. The legal profession has had an outsized impact through high-profile leadership positions in government, business, and non-profit sectors. However, leadership is not simply about a title or position. Today, more than ever, law school graduates need the skills required to be effective in their practices and in their communities. These skills – including grit, growth mindset, resilience, and working well with others – are crucial to their success. Not only do our graduates need these skills, many enter law school without them and have little or no baseline to build from. 
 
Research shows that all these leadership skills can be taught. Leadership can be incorporated into law school curricula through courses, orientation programming, and events throughout law school. This webinar will discuss thoughtful programming and reflective assessments and assignments that are designed to teach these skills to our law students
