Developing Young Lawyers Today for Leadership Tomorrow
The mission of HYLA's 2020–2021 Leadership Academy (the "Academy") is to prepare young attorneys for leadership roles in HYLA and other organizations through a service-oriented leadership training program.
During the tenure of the Academy, members will have the chance to practice and develop their leadership skills while working together to develop and execute a service project designed to leave a lasting impact on both the Academy members and the community.
Applicants are selected based on several criteria including (1) leadership skills, abilities, and potential; (2) achievements and accomplishments; and (3) community and bar involvement. Each person invited to become a member of the Academy will be required to pay an entry fee of $250, which will cover the cost of the luncheons and various other programs.
HYLA’s 2020-2021 Leadership Academy Class will include a virtual happy hour on Friday, October 9 at 5:30 p.m. and a mandatory retreat on a Saturday in October (date and time TBA).
