The ABA Business Law Section is committed to providing its members skills to assume leadership roles in the ABA, charitable and community organizations and their places of employment. The Leadership Academy has been organized to carry out this objective. The Academy will offer an advancing curriculum of CLE and non-CLE programs aimed to develop leadership skills of lawyers. The programs will be held over the course of a two-year period at five in-person meetings and two ancillary webinar presentations.
Leadership is Joyful. The leader enjoys the role, finding it energizing and fulfilling. Because the leader genuinely respects and cares for the organization and its members, he or she views leadership as a privilege and honor, not as a burden or as a means to another end.
