The Learning Model

Case studies, lectures, classroom discussions, and small group discussions focused on professional service organizations afford participants the opportunity to deliberate on the determinants of sustained superior performance.

Case studies on professional service organizations give participants exposure to real-world issues and help them work through possible approaches and solutions to the problems that leaders of professional service organizations confront. Participants practice making decisions about challenging real-life management problems in professional service settings.


The course structure is designed to sharpen the leadership skills of the lawyers who lead Corporate Counsel offices by exploring topics such as alignment between corporate and functional strategy, drivers of superior service, the challenge of internal service provision, motivation of professionals, compensation, nurturing an inclusive work environment, leading change, and effective leadership.

The program offers participants perspective, concepts, management tools, and skills that will help them be more effective as leaders of Corporate Counsel offices.

"The topics were very relevant from start to finish. I left with concrete action items for my development as a leader of an in-house legal function."
