“Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine.” - Chris Hadfield, Astronaut and Former Commander of the International Space Station


As always, the Global Leaders in Law community have been trying to think of a way to shine a light on those that strive to make a lasting difference.

Following the success of our Be Kind campaign, we are delighted to announce that we are continuing our partnership with Schillings to launch a new campaign entitled 'GLL Leave a Legacy'.

The report will showcase outstanding legal leaders who continuously strive to make a difference and have created a legacy that inspires others through initiatives that have shifted things and made your company or community a better place.

We are asking members of the legal industry to nominate leaders who not only inspire them, but will leave a lasting impact on their organisation or the legal sector as a whole.

Nominations can include (but are not limited to) transformational change, mentoring, inciting cultural change, defining and shaping the purpose of the organisation, ESG, empathetic resilience and well being, or diversity and inclusion initiatives.
