Event Description


An HCBA Signature Program: Provided at no charge for HCBA members.

Are you interested in achieving the next level of leadership in your legal career but feel like you could use additional training to get there? There are certain things law school didn’t teach and how to lead attorneys is one of them.

Built specifically for lawyers by lawyers, ILLP prepares participants from all levels of their organizations to lead during a times of great change within the legal profession. Attendees interested in making an investment in their future can register for the 5 session hybrid series. Potential topics to be covered (high level):

  2. Emotional intelligence overview and how it affects leadership
  3. Crucial Conversations sample, Leading in conflict
