The 8th Lawyer Leadership Institute, sponsored by Antero Resources, is set for May 10-12, 2019, at Stonewall Resort near Weston. The Institute is a weekend session 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 program consists of expert presentations on service skills, leadership traits, professionalism and civil discourse through participation in interactive sessions, networking opportunities and interpersonal relationship building in an informal learning atmosphere. Here are some comments from the participants in 2018: • Absolutely fantastic. • The small group setting allowed for better networking and constructive conversation. • Wonderful speakers on an important topic. • Excellent program. Learned new skills and built lasting friendships. • I will highly recommend for future lawyers in our firm. • The presentations gave wonderful insight into leadership skills and motivated me to be a better lawyer. • Very informative conference with great speakers. • I found the interactive nature of many of the presentations to be valuable.
