Each year the ABA Law Practice Management Section (LPM) offers two (2) positions within its Fellows Program for diverse attorneys. The LPM Fellows Program is designed to attract, retain, and develop talented diverse attorneys while providing leadership development opportunities for lawyers in under-represented groups. The intent of the Program is to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion, further demonstrate the Section’s commitment to ensuring equal opportunity in the profession, and to create a pipeline of future LPM leaders.
Selected Fellows will receive the opportunity to actively participate in LPM by working alongside Section leaders to develop content, programming, and education for the Section. Through financial assistance and mentoring, Fellows are exposed to growth opportunities they might not otherwise have access to. The LPM Fellows Program is a great way to experience all that LPM has to offer.
Embodied by the ABA’s Goal III, consideration is extended to all applicants, including racial/ethnically diverse lawyers, persons with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons.
Applications for the 2013-2014 Fellows Program are still being accepted. The deadline has been extended to July 1, 2013. For any additional information, please contact Patrick Cary.
