Leadership education is a lifelong endeavor combining theoretical knowledge, practice, and applied skills. While generations of lawyers have exercised leadership in a variety of capacities, law schools traditionally devoted little attention to integrating leadership education into the academic experience. Moritz has changed that history by offering leadership training to our students. Established in the fall of 2007, the Program on Law and Leadership (PLL) is the umbrella organization for an exciting array of leadership activities at the Moritz College of Law.
The PLL serves as a catalyst for Moritz law students to use their legal education for service 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 occasionally as students choose. We host nationally prominent speakers to present, invite professional consultants to facilitate, provide interactive small group and one-on-one exchanges with outstanding lawyer-leaders, and seek out numerous opportunities with our partner units across campus, all with an eye towards building the leadership strengths of Moritz’s talented students.
The PLL is a dynamic leadership development program that enriches our students’ education 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 trend-setting initiative in leadership education.
