Review of Don Polden and Barry Posner’s new book, Leading in Law

“In Leading in Law, Barry Posner and Donald Polden make a persuasive case for why leadership studies should be included in the modern law school curriculum.  Well-organized and accessible, this book introduces law students to leadership theory and offers them practical ways to develop an important professional skill.  Law faculty will find it an effective pedagogical tool; one which prompts students to think more deeply about their own professional identity as members of the legal profession.” 

 Paula A. Monopoli, Sol & Carlyn Hubert Professor of Law, University of Maryland Carey School of Law

“This book is fantastic. It’s comprehensive, well-written, and easy to read. Great use of research findings and examples. It’s a winner!”

Doug Blaze, Dean and Art Stoinitz & Elvin E. Overton Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Tennessee College of Law

“This is an outstanding textbook by two leading scholars in the field for a law school leadership course. The greatest strength is the excellent reflection questions at the end of each chapter.”
