Great Law Leadership
Imagine a world where law firms measure success by their ability to collaborate with high-quality people they like, attract profitable clients with whom they love working, and work in ways that allow them to make a positive contribution on the communities in which they live. These concepts are at the heart of Great Law, a movement of law firms making a conscious choice to cultivate high-performance cultures that enable collaboration. Great Law principles provide the leadership tools, motivation and confidence lawyers need to adapt to changing market conditions and undertake innovation initiatives. In this fast-paced, one-hour session, participants will learn about the Great Law movement, what it looks like and the leadership characteristics it takes to create it.
