Bar Leadership Initiative
Young Lawyers Division Bar Leadership Initiative Program
Are you interested in getting involved in the bar association and learning
how it works from the inside? Are you looking for opportunities to make
professional contacts, develop referral sources, enhance involvement in your
community, and position yourself to assume a leadership position within the bar?
Are you a member of the ACBA who has been practicing law for less than ten years?
If so, consider participating in the Young Lawyers Division Bar Leadership
Initiative (BLI) program and get plugged into an unrivaled professional experience.
The BLI was developed out of an acknowledged need for additional
leadership training for the young lawyers of the Allegheny County Bar Association.
Its goal is to aid and encourage young lawyers in developing their professional and
community leadership skills, and to position themselves to assume a leadership
position within the Allegheny County Bar Association. The ACBA Young Lawyers
Division (YLD) has developed an exciting new program for qualified young lawyers
who have an interest in participating in the ACBA, but who have had little or no
involvement in our bar association thus far. Up to 15 individuals will be selected to
participate in the Bar Leadership Initiative program (BLI).
Applications are currently being accepted. Applications are currently being accepted. The deadline to submit an application is Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
