Harvard Law School Executive Education was launched in 2007 and aims to present the latest research and case studies in intensive courses including Leadership in Law Firms (aimed at law firm managing partners and senior firm leaders) and Leadership in Corporate Counsel (aimed at general counsel). By studying a cross-section of professional service organizations, participants led by HLS faculty address the unique challenges of leading these organizations, and develop perspectives and skills to be more effective managers.
In this intensive week-long course, participants learn about and discuss the need for balancing their professional responsibilities as lawyers and leadership responsibilities in their firms; the importance of having a clear strategy for long term success; drivers of economic performance; motivation and development of professionals; and leading change in law firms.
