This session is based on a recent ABA Publication book authored by Melanie Bragg. It serves as a roadmap for leadership and personal growth applicable to all audiences. Interviews by Melanie Bragg revealed that each lawyer has a “LEAD Line,” or success principle, that he or she has lived by on their road to success. This unique compilation is organized into Bragg’s own leadership model consisting of L–Legacy, E–Excellence, A–Authenticity, and D–Determination. Touching upon every aspect of our lives, the LEAD Lines are practical and inspiring principles that can take any aspiring person from where they are to where they want to be in life. The stories are told by a wide range of lawyers -- past ABA presidents, judges, big firm lawyers, small firm lawyers, non-practicing lawyers -- what they all have in common is their ultimate success was driven by their defining moments.
