This innovative and transformative seven-session training program is 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.
