The University of Colorado Law School announced the launch of an executive training program, The Executive Lawyer, for Chief Legal Officers and in-house law department leaders. The three-day program will be held at the Wolf Law Building on the CU-Boulder campus from April 8-10, 2013.
This program offers senior in-house lawyers guidance on how to thrive in the “new normal” legal environment. “The Executive Lawyer provides in-house lawyers with an opportunity to step back and evaluate how to lead in a changing environment,” explained Dean Phil Weiser. “Across a range of key areas, from effective performance measurement to implementing Six Sigma to using legal process outsourcing, this program provides in-house lawyers with valuable tools for aligning the law department with the goals of the organization, improving the department’s productivity, and keeping its costs down.”
The Executive Lawyer program brings together accomplished attorneys from Fortune 100 companies and Colorado Law faculty. Over the course of the three days, it will combine larger group sessions with smaller group workshops that allow participants to share challenges.
“Colorado Law, given its distinguished faculty and its involved advisory board, is uniquely positioned to offer law department leaders the necessary tools for success,” stated Lee Reichert, General Counsel, Molson Coors. “The Executive Lawyer is a long awaited program for the region’s legal community.”
Participants can register for an “early bird” price of $3,000 for the three-day program until February 15. Members of the Association for Corporate Counsel will receive an additional $500 discount. After February 15, the price for the program will be $3,500.
