|NDLI Nuts and Bolts of Leadership and Management|
Outstanding trial skills don’t automatically translate into outstanding managerial skills. A good trial lawyer can, however, learn skills to use in supervising colleagues and managing staff. The Nuts & Bolts training seminar, one part of the National Defender Leadership Institute, offers a unique opportunity for defender leaders to step away from their offices, learn these skills and apply them to their individual management challenges in a supportive learning environment. This June in South Carolina, our expert faculty will help each participant translate advocacy skills into effective management techniques. The early registration deadline has been extended to April 27.
