Conference Overview:

The legal profession and law schools exist in a time of profound changes in the culture and in lawyering across various fields. This conference asks and seeks to provide answers to the questions: How do we promote leadership training in law schools in a more inclusive and forward-thinking manner? How do the profession and the academy confront the need to develop cultural competence; deal with gender, race and other identities affecting full participation; and address generational differences? Why have we not done better in equity and inclusion?

These questions call for navigating a set of tensions that must be addressed as part of both lawyer-leadership development generally and building the capacity to navigate across difference. Law may be reactive, but leadership is proactive. Lawyers learn to be risk averse, but leadership requires risk-taking. These, among the many tensions of legal training, present profound challenges to a profession that must drill down to learn to promote skills and competencies necessary to enable the next generation to confront the challenges facing the profession and the democracy.
