Executive Education & Special Programs

Uniting Leaders in Discussion and Collaboration

With an emphasis on the law’s intersection with business, policy and conflict resolution, Stanford Law School offers a set of innovative executive education programs that build on the academic excellence, cutting-edge research and multidisciplinary resources of SLS.

For more than two decades, these Executive Education Programs have brought together scholars, policymakers, jurists, corporate leaders, investment bankers, board members, venture capitalists, negotiators, mediators and leaders in the legal community from across the country and internationally. SLS strives to ensure that programs are grounded in the real world. Our approach combines keynote speakers and plenary debates with panel discussions and small-group work, enabling participants to learn by doing, not just listening.  Attendees share their expertise and discuss solutions to the most challenging issues facing business executives, policymakers and legal practitioners today.
