Lawyer Leadership Mastermind Series

Mastermind-style discussions of some of the most pressing issues facing law firms today are designed for managing partners, practice group leaders, other law firm leaders and those interested in being future leaders. Masterminds are peer-to-peer discussion groups used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other participants. Each of the ABA Lawyer Leadership Mastermind sessions starts with a short talk by an expert who will offer some “food for thought” to stimulate discussion. This is followed by a facilitated conversation where participants are invited to share their own experiences, insights, questions, and lessons learned. The goal is for participants to leave with new ideas, inspiration and a sense of community. There is no cost for this ABA member benefit program.

The Law Practice Division continues to be a partner for you, providing expertise, resources and opportunities for the continued development of your career path. We look forward to bringing you even more new programs and content to support your management objectives for the immediate future and beyond.
