- Sharing information and insights into the inner workings of the Globalaw network;
- Providing practical knowledge and tools to guide them in developing leadership skills;
- Instilling values of responsible, ethical leadership; and
- Further shaping their legal and professional education.
In addition to Manny, the program will include nine other participants from member firms Hill Farrer (United States), Hinckley Allen (United States), Gunster (United States), Almeida Law (Brazil), Ornano Avocats (France), Comyn Kelleher Tobin (Ireland), Ahlawat Associates (India), and Edwards, Kenny & Bray (Canada).
