LAWYER LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE-
The WV Bar Foundation held its highly acclaimed 5th Lawyer Leadership Institute at Stonewall Resort this past weekend. Pictured above is one of the expert speakers, U.S. District Court Judge John Bailey, discussing leadership matters with the group of younger lawyer leaders from across the state and with differing law practices.
The Institute’s objective is to provide newer lawyers with specific education and professional training that will enable them to become leaders in the legal profession, in their communities and in the State.
The featured judges and lawyers have well known expertise and knowledge in leadership skills. The speakers were:
U.S. District Court Judge John Bailey-Wheeling
Magistrate Judge Michael Aloi-Clarksburg
Circuit Court Judge Alan Moats-Grafton
WVU Law School Professor Emeritus Jack Bowman
WVU Law School Professor Tom Patrick
Elliot Hicks, Esq.-Charleston
Jessica Donohue Rhodes, Esq.-Charleston

The attendees, who have been admitted to practice for less than ten years and represented law offices and legal organizations, were:
The participants’ evaluations were the highest possible for the overall Institute with unanimous recommendations from each participant that they would recommend attendance at the Institute to other younger lawyer leaders. The accommodations/food /service at Stonewall Resort received very high marks as did the vast majority of the presentations.
The Bar Foundation is very appreciative of the volunteer time and leadership that was provided by the high caliber presenters.
Best wishes to the ten outstanding younger lawyers as they continue utilizing their leadership skills to improve the administration of justice and their service to the judicial system, the legal profession and their communities!
