Interdisciplinary in her approach to the law, but grounded in the desire to put the human elements front and center, Betsy Miller—an accomplished litigator and law school instructor—started asking where others in the legal profession were going to get the leadership lessons they needed to succeed in the field. Find out how sometimes you need to step up an answer your own questions in order to make a real impact.
Guest Betsy Miller, Dartmouth '96, left college directly for law school but had this sinking feeling she probably should have been a therapist. What she found, though, was that it just meant that she was drawn always to the human elements of the law. After years of varied work in the legal field—from accomplished litigator to law school instructor—she started asking where others in the legal profession were going to get the leadership lessons they needed to succeed and not just the “vocational training common to the field.
Having returned to school herself to delve into organizational development, change management, and leadership development, she now is on a mission to make an impact on the law both in practice and in the educational setting so that a new crop of lawyers—including women and other underrepresented groups—have the skills that they and their organizations need to excel in a field that relies solely on human talent and team-based work.
In this episode, find out from Betsy how sometimes you need to step up an answer your own questions in order to make a real impact …on ROADS TAKEN...with Leslie Jennings Rowley.
