April M. Barton: Teaching Lawyers to Think Like Leaders: The Next Big Shift in Legal Education (May 26, 2021)

April M. Barton, of Duquesne University – School of Law, has made available for download her article, Teaching Lawyers to Think Like Leaders: The Next Big Shift in Legal Education, published in the Duquesne University School of Law Research Paper. The abstract is as follows:

While thinking like a lawyer is indeed critical to becoming a good lawyer, we must also teach our law students to think like leaders. Countless leaders in politics, government, business, and the non-profit sector are lawyers. While these lawyers are smart, precise, thorough, and honorable professionals, our public and private sectors would be further served by lawyers who are also taught to understand what leadership is (and is not) and who have honed their own leadership awareness and skills.
