Executive Education


Stanford Law School offers a set of innovative executive education programs that build on the School's academic excellence, cutting-edge research, and multidisciplinary resources. Unique among law schools, Stanford centers its efforts on the intersection of law, business, policy, and conflict resolution.

Executive Education Programs bring together scholars, policy makers, corporate leaders, investment bankers, venture capitalists, negotiators, mediators, and leaders in the legal community from across the country and internationally. Participants share their expertise, providing an opportunity to discuss solutions to the most challenging issues facing business executives, policymakers, and legal practitioners today.

Since 1993 Stanford Law School Executive Education has provided a forum for these leaders to come together. We invite you to join us.

Mission Statement

Stanford Law School Executive Education seeks to create innovative programs built on our distinguished academic resources and our access to the dynamic Stanford Law School and Stanford University environment.

The Voice of Experience

Our Executive Education Programs feature pre-eminent faculty from the Stanford Law School, and the broader University including the Stanford Graduate School of Business, as well as members of the judicial, policy-making, corporate, and mediation communities. From the judges who make the decisions, to the scholars who interpret them, to the mediators whom solve conflicts that arise from them, to the attorneys and corporate executives who implement them, Stanford Law School Executive Education Programs are presented by experts who educate, challenge, and engage you.

A Community of Peers

Corporate leaders, investment bankers, venture capitalists, pension trustees, attorneys and general counsel, and corporate board members from the U.S. and other nations come together to share their expertise and discuss solutions to the challenging issues facing business executives and policymakers today. You will learn from each other and build relationships that extend beyond the boundaries of the time spent on campus.

A Practical Perspective

Our network of Affiliates and alumni ensure that Stanford Law School's Executive Education Programs remain grounded in the real world. Our approach of combining keynote speakers and plenary debates with panel discussions and small group work means you learn from doing and participating, not just listening.
