Board of Advisors
The Leadership Academy Board of Advisors is comprised of chief legal officers from a broad array of companies and organizations across the National Capital Region. They are deeply committed to helping advance the next generation of in-house leaders.
Our Board of Advisors interfaces directly with the Academy Faculty to ensure that each session delivers the tools and insights critical to in-house counsel leadership. Members of the Board of Advisors will also participate in various Academy events.
"Success as in-house counsel depends just as much on "soft skills" such as effectiveness as a communicator, advocate and coach as it does on the "hard skills" of substantive legal knowledge. Focused leadership development training can be an effective way to improve areas like these to help position an in-house lawyer for a leadership role."
