Uniting Leaders in Discussion and Collaboration
With an emphasis on the law’s intersection with business, policy and conflict resolution, Stanford Law School offers a set of innovative executive education programs that build on the academic excellence, cutting-edge research and multidisciplinary resources of SLS.
For more than two decades, these Executive Education Programs have brought together scholars, policymakers, jurists, corporate leaders, investment bankers, board members, venture capitalists, negotiators, mediators and leaders in the legal community from across the country and internationally. SLS strives to ensure that programs are grounded in the real world. Our approach combines keynote speakers and plenary debates with panel discussions and small-group work, enabling participants to learn by doing, not just listening. Attendees share their expertise and discuss solutions to the most challenging issues facing business executives, policymakers and legal practitioners today.
Voice of Experience, Community of Peers
SLS Executive Education Programs feature pre-eminent faculty from Stanford Law and the broader university community, including the Stanford Graduate School of Business, as well as members of the judicial, policy-making, corporate and legal communities. These programs are designed to educate, challenge and engage a broad array of participants, from the judges who make the decisions, to the scholars who interpret them, to the mediators who solve conflicts, to the attorneys and corporate executives who implement solutions. Through their work together, participants make connections and build relationships that last beyond their time spent on campus.
The nation's premier executive education program for directors and senior executives of publicly traded firms, Director’s College addresses a broad range of issues that confront modern boards.
