About this item

This is the first course book targeted for leadership courses in law schools. It combines excerpts from leading leadership publications, accessible background material, real-world problems and case histories, class exercises, and bibliographic and media references in areas of core leadership competencies.



  • Author Deborah L. Rhode has edited three well-respected books on leadership (two on women and one on moral leadership), has authored recent books on Lawyers as Leaders and Women and Leadership, has developed one of the first law school courses on leadership, and has written widely on leadership in law reviews.
  • Each chapter includes excerpts from foundational texts, engaging overviews of core concepts, discussion questions, class problems, and exercises. The problems and overviews draw on contemporary examples as well as leading research.
  • Each major topic includes links to short segments from movies, documentaries, and news clips that can be shown in class.
  • Coverage includes key theoretical and empirical issues concerning the nature and qualities of leadership, the role of ethics, gender and diversity, public service, and core competencies (decision making, influence, communication, conflict

    resolution, crisis management, and social and organizational change).

  • Materials on moral leadership and scandals make for highly engaging discussion on “how the good go bad.”
  • A separate chapter on leadership through film and literature provides background and questions for leading novels, short stories, and movies that profile leadership challenges in law and politics.
  • An extensive teachers’ manual provides comprehensive teaching notes and sample syllabi, as well as suggestions for further materials, case histories, and class exercises.
