Partners in Education and Programming


Harvard Law School (HLS) Executive Education offers a Leadership in Law Firms program, a six-day intensive study of a cross-section of professional service firms to help participants develop the perspectives and skills necessary to be effective law firm leaders. HLS is offering LMA members who have been members for two years or more a 10 percent discount on the program.

Leadership in Law Firms attendees learn frameworks and strategies for balancing professional responsibilities, strategic planning, improving organizational alignment, managing growth and change and motivating people and teams. Unlike programs purporting to be similar, the Leadership in Law Firms (LLF) program uses business-school style cases written specifically about lawyers, law firms and legal organizations, and brings to the classroom all of the research and insight about the changing global legal profession that the HLS Center on the Legal Profession continuously generates.

This program is designed for professionals who currently have, or are going to assume, management responsibilities (managing partners, senior partners, chairmen, chief executive officers, chief officers, executive directors, executive committee members, office heads, practice heads, sector heads) in their law firms. Click here to read testimonials from past attendees. 

Learn more about the program, and apply. LMA members who have been members for two years or more should indicate in their application that they heard of the program through LMA in response to the "How did you hear about the program?" question.

Please contact Phoebe Tamminen, market outreach manager, with any questions. You can also access this flyer to learn more.
