”Boot-camp” in U.S. law, regulation, and U.S. legal thinking

‘U.S. Law for Leaders’ is a unique immersive program that provides practical insights into what makes the U.S. ‘tick’ legally. Participants learn the essentials of the U.S. legal system in a very hands-on and time-effective way. It helps lawyers, executives, government officials, compliance officers and others to deal more effectively with their counterparts in the U.S. This applies equally to business partners, lawyers and regulators.  Held once a year on the Campus of the acclaimed University of St.Gallen Executive School, this program is taught by a distinguished faculty consisting of leading practitioners and legal professionals from major U.S. law firms, regulators and universities.
