The goal of the Austin Bar/AYLA Leadership Academy (the “Academy”) is to assist Austin-area lawyers in making a difference in our community and in service to the Bar. A class of approximately 30 (thirty) members of the Austin Bar Association and AYLA will be selected from applications submitted by lawyers of all areas of practice, firm size and levels of experience. The Academy will begin with a mandatory retreat, followed by a series of six lunch presentations during which participants will network with and enjoy lunch presentations by leaders in federal, state and local government, public education, non-profit organizations, and the Bar. The course will culminate with the organization of an optional class project.
