"In recognition of the profound need for visionary civic leadership and courageous moral action in today's legal system, the University of Maryland School of Law is creating LEAD," she wrote.
"Thanks to a $1.6 million investment from the Fetzer Institute, the UM School of Law has recently launched a pioneering initiative that will emphasize ethics, moral formation and leadership development for lawyers. Through a coordinated series of curricular and co-curricular offerings, public service projects and clinical programs here and abroad, we will equip our students with new tool and analytical frameworks for confronting these most pressing challenges and responsibilities of our profession."
