2011 Leadership Boot Camp

Location: The University of Texas School of Law

On February 18, 2011, the Center for Women in Law at The University of Texas School of Law hosted its second annual Leadership Boot Camp. The Leadership Boot Camp is a limited enrollment, all-day, intensive workshop for third-year law students, judicial clerks, and LL.M. students. “The Leadership Boot Camp provides women students and new graduates with critical skills needed to successfully navigate their careers in a profession that currently does not support their advancement,” explained Linda Bray Chanow, Executive Director of the Center.

The hallmark of the Leadership Boot Camp is the combination of lecture and applied learning workshops. Expert trainers delivered lectures in effective communication, self-promotion, and networking. Following each lecture, students worked in interactive small groups of four to six students with two experienced attorneys to perfect these skills and receive individualized critiques. Read more.

“I would wholeheartedly recommend Boot Camp to everyone in law school. In fact, I wish that I could go through it once more.”
