The Santa Clara County Bar Association is seeking participants in its 2016 Barristers Leadership Program.
This program, implemented in 1994, is designed to introduce participants to the local legal landscape, to prepare future leaders of the Bar Association, to encourage and promote diversity among the leadership, and to provide an opportunity for young and/or new attorneys to strengthen their leadership skills. All participants must be SCCBA Members who have been in practice fewer than 5 years or are under the age of 36.
This four-month program includes formal leadership training sessions, lunch with the presiding judges, a leadership workshop, an ethics session with Judge Towery, and an intensive orientation to the SCCBA. Participants will also attend the SCCBA Board of Trustees, Finance, and Executive Committee meetings, as well as the Barristers’ Committee and other SCCBA committee meetings.
“The Barristers Leadership program provided an invaluable opportunity to meet local attorneys with different levels of experience and create new contacts,” said one past participant. “This program also allowed me to develop leadership skills that will be useful in my law practice and as a member of the Santa Clara County Bar Association.”
All interested candidates are encouraged to submit an application form here. All applications are due by April 28, 2016.
