Emerging Leaders was created to give Harvard Law School employees the opportunity to develop leadership skills through educational sessions, mentoring, events, and community service. All HLS staff members who have been in their current position at the Law School for at least one year are encouraged to apply. The application cycle for Emerging Leaders opens every summer, and selected applicants are notified in early September.
The deadline to apply for the 2017-2018 class of Emerging Leaders is August 16, 2017.
Applications consist of
- A completed Emerging Leaders Application (which includes one required short essay question)
- A copy of your current resume
- One (1) letter of reference (from your current / primary supervisor)
Being present at the program events is essential to the success of Emerging Leaders, so please make sure you have a discussion with your supervisor before applying. If you cannot make the commitment, please feel free to attend the other EL events open to the community.
