This program left me with a greater understanding of how to manage people and business, balance business objectives with legal risks, and was the foundation of many networking opportunities and friendships. It was a great learning environment, safe space to discuss legal and business trends, and gave me tools to use immediately in my role.

I joined the program because I feel obligated to be equally as strong in my legal skills as I am in my business abilities. This helps to ensure we're giving our clients the most effective representation possible.
