Plan Ahead For The Leadership Academy Class of 2019

After a whirlwind kick-off, the Leadership Academy Class of 2018 has completed its fall sessions.

In November, Alexander Caillet, CEO, Corentus Inc., together with Eric Margolin of Carmax and Jim McMillan of The Pew Charitable Trusts, led the Academy Fellows through a session on the dynamics of high-performing teams. Learn more about Alexander Caillet, the November session, and planning and pricing for Year 2 in the Leadership Academy News.

We are actively planning for the Class of 2019, and hope you will too!  Visit the Leadership Academy website to read more about the Academy’s exceptional faculty, dynamic and distinguished Board of Advisors, and outstanding curriculum specifically tailored for in-house counsel leaders.

Mark your calendar: the Application Form for Year 2 will be posted on February 1. Applications for Year 2 will be accepted starting on March 1, with rolling admissions beginning in March.

The path to career advancement is paved with a commitment to personal growth. Good in-house lawyers are effective advisors. Great in-house lawyers learn how to lead.
