In-Person Meetings

Group instruction developed and delivered by industry leading experts. Law firm and in-house focused break-out sessions and workshops. Critical thinking discussion centered around participatory case studies. Each element designed specifically for LCLD and its innovative talent to leader program model. Read the "In-Person Meeting Logistics" section here to see the meeting dates and locations.


Online Experiential Learning

Short, interactive modules packed with actionable advice and paired with action-oriented skill development assignments. Supported by Program Facilitators, designed to provide Pathfinders with the implementation opportunities they need to internalize Pathfinder curriculum and career building practices.


Compass Conversations

Small group gatherings focused on the personal experiences and professional development advice from featured LCLD Fellows. One in-house Fellow and one law firm Fellow host each breakfast or lunch and provide a meaningful opportunity to network with emerging leaders in the legal profession. Read the Compass Conversations FAQs and Suggested Topics resource.


Program Facilitator

The Program Facilitator is the internal point of contact for the Pathfinder. The Facilitator works in the Pathfinder’s organization and has a direct line to Pathfinder curriculum and materials through LCLD. Facilitators work to ensure that Pathfinder curriculum is made relevant to the Pathfinder’s workplace and that Pathfinders have a smooth and successful Pathfinder Program experience. Read the LCLD Pathfinder Program Faciliator Guide.


Peer Networking

Pathfinders are put into small working groups of three-to-five peers. These groups are valuable for dissecting and preparing case studies at in-person meetings and for working through experiential learning action assignments. Peer and study groups also help Pathfinders grow their professional networks.
