What Participants Say About Our Leadership in Corporate Counsel Program

General counsel of leading organizations encounter challenges unlike those faced by law firm or other external-client facing, professional service firm leaders. They negotiate the treacherous currents between providing high quality service to corporate leaders and maintaining the independence of their perspective and advice. Corporate legal departments are also the fastest growing segment of the legal profession, requiring general counsel to build the sophisticated leadership skills necessary to manage such growth.

Our Leadership in Corporate Counsel program offers general counsel insights into the challenges they face and provides participants with the frameworks, concepts and tools critical to succeeding in their increasingly complicated roles. Learn more.

“The course was a rare instance of where passion and enthusiasm were matched by the skill and experience of all the people involved. This allowed for the creation of a potential mind shift that can change the course of how one manages the legal function in their organization and even more powerfully their role within the organization.”

The program exceeded my expectations in every regard. The materials hit upon many areas which I had been exploring in my organization for some time, and hearing the perspectives of a broad group was reassuring and productive. The Harvard instructors were thought-provoking and truly challenging. This is not a passive course for people to simply review or receive information, but is a learning laboratory for both the participants and faculty. I look forward to continued participation in this lab as the program continues and expands.”
