The American Bar Association is accepting applications for the ABA Law Practice Division (LP) Fellowship.
ABA Law Practice Division (LP) Fellowship is a rare opportunity to set yourself on a path to leadership by becoming engaged in LP activities and raise your professional profile. This is your chance to make lasting connections with industry thought leaders in the business of practicing law on issues of management, finance, technology and marketing. The Fellowship Program expands LP’s commitment to recruiting and developing new and diverse lawyers, including members of the ABA Young Lawyers Division (YLD), into future leaders of LP and the ABA.
For 2017-2018, LP’s Leadership seeks applicants for both a one-year term Fellowship and for a two- year term Fellowship. The number of Fellowships given for each term will be determined based on the qualifications of the applicants and the needs of the LP division. The individuals selected will be able to demonstrate prior leadership experience, interest in the LP division, and a commitment to actively participate in LP events, including attendance at all LP Fall and Spring Meetings during the term of their Fellowship. LP provides Fellows with a generous reimbursement to ensure that attendance is not a financial burden.
LP will actively engage Fellows LP leadership meetings, appoint Fellows to LP Boards and Committees, and encourage them to actively engage in key LP initiatives. Through their participation, Fellows receive the experience and guidance needed to prepare them for positions of leadership with LP and the ABA. Learn More>>>
