Brave New Law Leadership in Extremity: Webinar Recording

Date: 21 July 2020

During this webinar, we considered the skills that leaders need in any kind of extreme situation. How you can build leadership qualities and when you need to start thinking about these skills.

Do lawyers need to start to think about leadership much earlier?

Should these skills be taught in law degrees and law schools?

We explored ideas from business including thinkers like Marshall Goldsmith; Herminia Ibarra; Jim Collins and Simon Sinek as well as hearing directly from leading general counsel.

Brave New Law series

In DWF's Brave New Law series, we are working with Dr Catherine McGregor to explore ideas and strategies around how we create the legal profession of the future and accessing the skills and ideas which are best to shape this. What’s needed to imagine this future of law is bravery and an ability to embrace the new.

But to do this we cannot have a tension between on the one side, the human and the creative and on the other processes and technology; we need to bring both together.
