Section Description

This seminar provides an opportunity for the leadership team of the Paralegal Pathways Initiative (PPI) to collaborate in building their leadership skills, overseeing the work of the 2L student cohort, planning and directing PPI, and implementing the goals of PPI.

In the fall, the PPI Leadership Seminar meets in weekly 2-hour classroom sessions. The students are responsible for developing the short and long-term goals for their respective components of PPI, meeting regularly with the 2Ls they are supervising, and preparing written progress reports that will structure the discussion for each class session. In the seminar, the students reflect on their individual leadership challenges and successes, and they engage in a collaborative discussion about the lessons they have learned and steps they intend to take to address challenges and reinforce successes. In the spring, the seminar students take the lead in planning and running weekly classroom sessions with the entire PPI faculty and student team. At the end of the academic year, the seminar students are responsible for preparing detailed final written reports summarizing how they have developed as leaders and whether they have achieved their individual learning goals.
