Baylor Law Review
Baylor L. Rev.
In September 2020, I participated in a panel discussion with several other deans at Baylor Law School’s 2020: Vision for Leadership Conference. The subject was “Leadership Programming in Law Schools.”
My assignment was to account for why teaching leadership might meet with resistance from inside law schools, despite widespread agreement that lawyer-leaders have always been and are always likely be critical to the survival of American democracy, as well as our fellow citizens’ hopes of living meaningful, satisfying lives.
This essay endeavors to memorialize and expand on the views I expressed on the panel.
