William and Mary School of Business

McGlothlin Leadership Forum

"The Leadership Forum will bring William & Mary students in touch with the highest caliber leaders in business and law in our nation.  This highly personal program is intended to inspire our students to the highest level of achievement possible."
 — James W. McGlothlin

The McGlothlin Leadership Forum brings together two generations of leaders: the next generation from the business and law schools and the McGlothlin Leadership Forum Fellows, pre-eminent leaders in their fields. The Fellows will engage with students and faculty in discussion, debate, and analysis on the most pressing issues of the 21st Century economy and the global political, legal, and free enterprise systems that comprise it. 


For his generosity and steadfast commitment to the College of William & Mary,  the alma mater of a nation, the Forum is named in recognition of James W. McGlothlin ’62, J.D. ’64, LL.D. ’00.


The 2014 edition of the McGlothlin Leadership Forum will take place on Oct. 21-23, 2014 on the campuses of the Mason School of Business and the William & Mary Law School. The 2014 Plenary session will be moderated by James W. McGlothlin, and will feature the 2014 McGlothlin Leadership Fellows — James J. Sandman, George W. Tamke and Strauss Zelnick
