leadership academy

When: January through May
Chairs: Emily Morris and Michael Roberts
Judicial Liaison: Judge Karin Crump

Members of the 2018 Leadership Academy class at the Texas Supreme Court with Justice Debra Lehrmann.

The Austin Bar/AYLA Leadership Academy was established to assist Austin-area lawyers in making a difference in our community, serving the Bar, and promoting professional development.

Each year a class of approximately 30 members is selected from applications submitted by lawyers of all areas of practice, firm size, and levels of experience.

The Leadership Academy includes a mandatory retreat, followed by a series of five mid-day presentations during which participants will network with and enjoy lunch presentations by leaders in public policy, government, the private sector, non-profit organizations, and the Bar. The course culminates with a class project.

CLICK HERE to complete an application for the 2019 Leadership Academy Class.  Application deadline is November 16, 2018.

There is a $250 administrative/enrollment fee to cover the retreat, all lunches, and materials. Scholarships may be available to those who need assistance.

The video below was produced by the AYLA/Austin Bar Leadership Academy class of 2018 as their class project.
