Wellbeing and Resilience for Law School Managers

Jointly Organised by IALS and CHULS (Committee of Heads of UK Law Schools)

This workshop is aimed at all those holding management and leadership roles within law schools. The focus is on wellbeing challenges in relation to performing leadership roles, including the following themes: the difficulty of constructing staff and student wellbeing as a collective institutional project rather than as being in competition; staff development and performance; the culture of targets and metrics; the challenge of creative engagement and resistance; the danger of co-optation while striving to achieve improved performance. The format of the day will be highly interactive, with breakout and feedback sessions.
