About the Maitland and Fine© Law Firm Simulation Exercise
A core element of the Moving from Lawyer to Leader program is the Maitland and Fine© simulation exercise, which is an interactive experience that draws heavily on learning by doing. The simulation closely parallels real-life decision making and group interactions typical in a law firm. The behaviors individuals exhibit typically mirror behaviors in real life, enabling accurate feedback and impactful insights. Participants receive real-time feedback from both other participants and trained coaches, providing a highly effective environment where participants can hone strengths and receive help with leadership challenges.
