What students are saying about the Leadership Boot Camp:

“The Boot Camp has changed my life!”

“It was the most helpful one-day conference I’ve attended.”

“Breaking out into small groups was an inspired idea and the speakers were excellent.”

“The confidential environment allowed me to ask sensitive questions about being a woman lawyer. As a result, I was given invaluable advice and guidance. Thank you!”

“[The thing I liked best was] the interactive workshops. I really appreciated having to practice some of the skills. It is one thing to listen to what you are supposed to do. It is a far more difficult thing to actually implement . . .”

“[“T]he opportunity to practice these seldomly addressed skills was incredibly valuable.”

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