Abstract

Most law school deans enter into service with little training in management. In this article, I note that some valuable leadership skills can be learned while enjoying good literature. In my case, I found that the "Master and Commander" series by Patrick O'Brian provided me with many management lessons.

Keywords: leadership, literature, deanship, law school administration
