Forum brings together leaders from business, law and government with students at the Mason School of Business, William & Mary Law School

The Mason School of Business at the College of William & Mary and William & Mary Law School announce the Third Annual of the McGlothlin Leadership Forum. 

Named in honor of James McGlothlin, Chairman and CEO of The United Company, this year’s edition of the Forum will be October 8-10, 2013.

The Forum will feature a series of discussions between and among the McGlothlin Leadership Forum Fellows — pre-eminent leaders in their fields — and students and faculty of the business and law schools, culminating in a plenary session of open exchange, active debate, and analysis of the challenges of the global economy and the political, legal, and free enterprise systems that comprise it. The Forum Fellows will be chosen annually and exemplify the pinnacle of leadership, vision, integrity, and revolutionary thinking.

The McGlothlin Forum Fellows for 2013 are:

  • Sen. Evan Bayh — Partner at McGuireWoods LLP, Senior Advisor at Apollo Global Management and Former United States Senator from Indiana
  • Glenn H. Hutchins — Co-founder, Silver Lake
  • Linda A. Klein — Managing Shareholder, Georgia, Baker Donelson

Conceived and designed by McGlothlin, a 1962 graduate of the College, a 1964 graduate of the law school, and honored by the College in 2000 with a Doctor of Laws honorary degree, the Forum intends to prepare students to make a difference in the world by expanding their understanding of the vital roles of leadership and accountability in global political, legal, and economic systems.

"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," said McGlothlin.

On October 9, Forum Fellows will meet with students of the business and law schools throughout the day and then convene a plenary session, which will be on the topic of current leadership challenges in business, law and politics. The plenary session is open to the public and will be in the Brinkley Commons Room in Alan B. Miller Hall at 2 p.m. and will be available via live video stream from the forum website as well.
