    Business Management Principles for Lawyers (Spring Session)

    In-house counsel seeking professional growth know that being a good lawyer is only the first step to becoming a valued business partner. Becoming a “go-to” resource requires more than a sound knowledge of legal issues. It mandates both broad and deep knowledge of the client’s business and the principles that make the company successful. To be the “trusted business advisor,” in-house counsel must develop a fundamental understanding of economics, financial performance, operations management, strategic thinking, communication, negotiation, and leadership.

    The DRI "Business Management Principles for Lawyers" series provides these essential business skills and is taught by business professors who specialize in training executives to be effective business leaders. The small group setting -- limited to in-house counsel -- explores these topics in an interactive, hands-on environment to arm good in-house lawyers with the necessary tools to become great company leaders.
