2018 Law School Development Conference Recap

The Section hosted its Law School Development Conference in Chicago, May 29-June 1. The conference drew over 150 deans and development officers from law schools across the country as they networked and attended engaging and relevant sessions on topics such as leadership storytelling, metrics, women in philanthropy and social media campaigns, to name a few.

Esther Choy, President & Chief Story Facilitator of the Leadership Story Lab, led an interactive half-day plenary session on the fundamentals of storytelling in philanthropy.

Attendees also had the opportunity to attend a luncheon that featured an inspiring discussion with Valerie Jarrett, Senior Distinguished Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School and Senior Advisor to the Obama Foundation. The discussion was moderated by Daniel Rodriguez, Dean and Professor at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.
