Leading lawyers in a complex world – transformational leadership for law firm partners
Who should attend
Law firm partners in leadership and management positions in their firms and those in line to take up such positions and responsibilities, along with Senior Business Services Professionals whose work supports the fee earners in the business and builds the capability of the firm itself.
The Leading Lawyers programme provides partners and senior managers in law firms with a practical and in-depth understanding of the challenges that face law firm leaders in today’s complex markets. The programme also develops the skills needed to apply this understanding in the day-to-day work of the firm.
The programme creates a blend of academically rigorous and practical sessions to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the concepts of law firm management, the role of a partner and the challenges facing law firms in the future.
