Keystone Professionalism & Leadership Program

The Keystone Program is being reinvented. A new description is coming soon. 


The Keystone Professionalism & Leadership Program (“Keystone Program”) is an optional program designed to help students prepare for their legal careers. The name of the Keystone Program derives from the concept of a “keystone.” When an arch is built, the keystone is the last piece placed during construction and locks all of the other stones into position, allowing the arch to bear weight. Similarly, without professionalism and leadership, one’s professional career cannot ascend to the heights it is capable of reaching.

The Keystone Program operates much like the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs that licensed attorneys participate in throughout most of the United States. It affords students additional opportunities to gain professional, strategic, interpersonal, practical, and leadership skills that are critical and necessary for career success.
