Leadership Development & Training

The Leadership Development Team (LDT) is committed to harnessing the experience and ability of Law Society leaders around the world to help us grow and better serve our communities. If you’d like the LDT to provide training to your chapter leaders, or if you’re willing to share your own experiences and insights with other chapters, please complete this short survey.

Leader Orientation Modules

To assist chapter leaders in being successful in their new roles, the LDT has prepared the following modules that we invite each new leader to complete. Beginning in 2019, a one-hour review of these materials by chapter leadership became a requirement to receive the Quality or Outstanding Chapter Award.
