Leadership Academy

Lawyers learning to lead at the NCBA Leadership Academy.

The North Carolina Bar Association provides an intensely interactive and participatory leadership training program for young lawyers.

The 16-lawyer class size is designed to facilitate interaction and an intimate learning environment. The goals of the program are to help young lawyers to: increase personal self-awareness, including strengths and areas for development; develop and refine leadership skills, including inspiring confidence, creating a clear and compelling vision, building trust, communicating effectively, and enhancing team performance; improve their ability to influence others; and use the leadership skills as they learn in order “to make a difference.” 

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be a member of the North Carolina Bar Association and its Young Lawyers Division;
  • Have been admitted to practice of law for not less than two nor more than 10 years;
  • Provide a letter of recommendation from another member of the bar who knows you well and can vouch for your aptitude and potential leadership;
  • Commit to attend all sessions and obtain the commitment of your employer, if any, to support your participation and attendance; and
  • Submit your application with all accompanying documents to the NCBA by January 16, 2015.
