[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Non Profits : Many lawyers practice public interest law through or with nonprofit organizations. Students should consider taking 1 or more courses that offer perspectives on the strategic management of non-profits and the principles of social entrepreneurship. This course focuses on leadership principles, applicable to both the for-profit and non-profit world.
General course Description:
What does it mean to be a principled leader? What role do values play in an organization, and how do successful leaders apply their values in their daily business lives? This course examines the concept of principled leadership and the various ways that leaders try to institutionalize particular values within the organizations they lead. Equally important, it explores the difficult challenges that leaders sometimes face when trying to apply their principles in a tough, fast-paced business environment, where others may not share the same expectations. Through assigned readings, interactive lectures with visiting executives, and weekly small group discussions, students will learn how practicing leaders implement their principles, while reflecting the realities of different cultural expectations and meeting business demands. The course will provide a forum for students to learn directly from practicing leaders and to think introspectively about their own personal values, leadership styles, and long-term aspirations.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
