Institute for Leadership in the Legal Profession

Event Description


Registration is currently closed for this 2023. Thank you.

Join us for an innovative and transformative five-session training program designed to help you achieve the next leadership level in your legal career! Offered in alternate years only, the Institute for Leadership in the Legal Profession (ILLP) is created to be comprehensive, holistic, and relevant to legal professionals in a variety of practice and organizational settings and roles. Over the course of the sessions, we explore self-leadership and awareness, leading others, and leading within an organization. Built specifically for lawyers by lawyers, ILLP prepares participants from all levels of their organizations to lead during times of great change within the legal profession.

Participation in the program is capped to allow for group interaction and individualized learning, requiring participation in 5 sessions every other Wednesday beginning February 15, 2023. Three of the longer sessions will take place in person, parking will be covered, and lunch will be provided. Two of the shorter sessions will take place by Zoom. When you register on this page, you will be automatically registered for all five sessions.

Prior to the start of the sessions, you will complete a questionnaire that takes approximately 30 minutes. From this, you will be provided a personalized emotional quotient inventory, giving you insight into your strengths and weaknesses in emotional intelligence.
