    This program will feature newly emerging empirical research on leadership and service to others. The panel will highlight the ways in which law schools help law students develop skills, competencies and values that are central to leadership, public service, ethical conduct, and fulfilling responsibilities to others. Moreover, the panel will discuss research, focused on the interest of law students in public service when applying to law school and the impact of experiences during law school  -- such as clinical training, pro bono opportunities, and public interest opportunities --on the leadership and public service that legal professionals undertake within our communities. Finally, the panel will highlight work that informs our understanding of the changing nature of leadership roles undertaken by lawyers in both government and the private sector.
    Papers from this program will be published in The Journal of Legal Education.
