13th Leadership Academy Class of 2018-2019
The 25 members of the 13th Leadership Academy met in September at a day-and-a-half retreat. They will meet six more times between now and May, with each workshop devoted to topics intended to help them develop their leadership skills with respect to ethical, professional and community service issues; to build relationships
among legal professionals from across the state and from across disciplines within the profession.
Other goals include raising their level of awareness regarding the broad range of issues facing the legal profession and enhancing the diversity of leaders within
the legal profession and the community as a whole.
