Instilling Values into Public Life
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Fitts Auditorium, University of Pennsylvania Law School
3501 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104

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.

Panel 1: Character and the Rule of Law

Can respect for the rule of law be cultivated in future leaders and how can institutions contribute to that process? Does the legal profession have a special role to play in enhancing respect for the rule of law?

10:30 – 11:45 AM
Panel 2: Inculcating virtue: Education and Modern Leadership

What are the roles of character and environment, respectively, in creating ethical leaders? Should educators seek to cultivate virtuous citizens?

Panel 3: Military Leadership and Character Development

Officer training focuses on character development. Should the military model serve as a basis for leadership cultivation in the rest of society?

Panel 4: The Dark Side of Leadership

Effective leaders often have character traits that some might think of as vices. Are effective leaders always virtuous? Is there a distinction between real and faux leaders?

3:45 – 5:00 PM
Panel 5: Dilemmas in Corporate and Political Leadership

Is there a distinction between the desirable character traits and duties of a business leader and those of a political leader? Is ethical leadership in the corporate sector the same or different from ethical leadership in the political arena?

Keynote Address – Judge Sergio Moro, Brazil

Through his campaign against corruption, reaching the top echelons of Brazil’s business and political leadership, Judge Moro has emerged as an international defender of the rule of law. In this keynote address, Judge Moro will focus on his efforts to enhance rule of law values in Brazil.
