Leadership program for young lawyers

The North Carolina Bar Association is launching an exciting new program in early 2011 as part of the Association’s Young Lawyer Initiatives.  It is the Leadership Academy, a leadership training program for young lawyers that has been designed and developed by a subcommittee of the Young Lawyer Initiatives Task Force in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership, a world-renowned leadership training organization headquartered in Greensboro.  

More detailed information about the Leadership Academy, including a program summary and schedule, participant eligibility requirements, and an application form, can be found on the NCBA website at  This will be a unique opportunity for the young lawyers who participate to develop and refine important leadership skills that will be of great benefit to the profession, to their workplaces and other communities, and to their own professional and personal development.   

Since the first session of the Leadership Academy will be on March 4, 2011 and the application deadline is January 28, 2011, candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
