This symposium will focus on concepts of ethical leadership and explore the contribution that educational, military, political, professional and business institutions can make towards the development of ethical leaders. CERL’s contribution to
this topic reflects its focus on rule of law values: where individuals have internalized respect for the rule of law their stewardship is both ethically grounded and maximally effective.
