About

Established in the fall of 2007, the Program on Law and Leadership is the umbrella for all activities related to leadership at the Moritz College of Law. We are deeply committed to the idea that leadership education is a lifelong endeavor combining theoretical knowledge, practice, and applied skills.

While lawyers have exercised leadership in a variety of capacities for generations, law schools have traditionally devoted little attention and effort into integrating leadership education into the academic experience.

The legal profession is demanding great leaders, and students should demand such training from their law schools. Professor Garry W. Jenkins explains in his Bloomberg Law Report Article.

Accordingly, the program seeks to serve as a catalyst for Moritz law students to use their legal education to serve in leadership positions in the profession, organizations, their communities, and society at large. For students who choose to focus on developing their leadership potential, we offer a three-year cycle of non-repeating programs and activities that can be accessed as often or as little as students choose. We host nationally-ranked speakers to present, invite world-class consultants to facilitate, and seek out numerous opportunities with our partner units across campus, all with an eye on capturing the leadership element.
The PLL is a dynamic leadership development program that enriches our students’ educational experience. It is among the few leadership programs fully integrated into the law school setting. We invite our students and alumni to participate in this exciting initiative in leadership education.
