|SUCCESSFUL ALPS LAWYER LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE
A couple weeks ago, eleven newer lawyers participated in the second ALPS Lawyer Leadership Institute at the Stonewall Resort near Weston.
These attorneys, who have been practicing law for ten years or less, received presentations and interacted with outstanding members of the judiciary and the legal profession that will enable them to become leaders in the legal profession, in their communities and in the State. They heard remarks on service skills, leadership traits, professionalism and civil discourse through participation in group sessions, networking opportunities and interpersonal relationship building in an informal atmosphere.
Here are their comments directly from the evaluation forms:
On the evaluation forms, the Institute and the location at the Stonewall Resort were evaluated on a 1-5 basis (5 is highest) and both were rated at 4.65. The presentations by the judges and lawyers received average scores from a high three rating to five plus. Each of the eleven participants confirmed that they would recommend the Institute to other younger lawyer leaders.
The Bar Foundation gives a very special thanks to ALPS (Attorney Liability Protection Society) and its long time extraordinary leader, Bob Minto, for sponsoring this outstanding event and commends the younger lawyers, who attended, for their commitment to be lawyer leaders.
