Vishan Kakara Atchamah

Vishan studied Legal Leadership Essentials as part of his Masters of Law.

The Legal Leadership Essentials program provided me with a unique opportunity to engage with the concepts, models and practices of leadership, and reflect on whether they could be applied to systems involving lawyers. This program was a fulfilling experience, and it was taught with great emotional and psychological dexterity. Vishan Kakara Atchamah, Senior Associate, Ashurst
