Our executive education programs are unrivaled and widely acclaimed because we provide:
These advantages are multiplied by our close partnership with two leading initiatives unique to Harvard Law School: the HLS Center on the Legal Profession (CLP) and the HLS Case Development Initiative (CDI). CLP is one of the world’s leading centers for the study of the global legal profession; and our relationship ensures that our participants gain special access to CLP’s cutting edge research and insights. CDI is comprised of several full-time experts dedicated to writing cases and developing learning materials specifically tailored to the challenges facing lawyers and legal organizations. We set our programs apart by these partnerships, what we teach, and how we teach.
