Washington Leadership Institute Seeks 2014-2015 Class of Fellows

Application deadline: September 19, 2014

The Washington Leadership Institute ("WLI") is a collaborative leadership program between the Washington State Bar Association and the University of Washington School of Law (UW Law). The program is governed by a volunteer Advisory Board and is administratively staffed by the Law School. We invite you to consider applying for a 2014-2015 Washington Leadership Institute (WLI) fellowship.

Starting August 18, 2014, the WLI will begin accepting applications for the incoming 2014-2015 class of Fellows. All required application materials must be received at the UW Law office no later than September 19, 2014, at 5:00 p.m.

The WLI is an innovative and award winning leadership training program that originated in the WSBA under the guidance of Bar President Ron Ward. The mission of the WLI is to recruit and train diverse and underrepresented lawyers for future leadership within the legal and bar community.

Twelve attorneys, in practice for at least three years and not more than ten years, will be carefully selected for the tenth year of the program. The eight professional development seminars run from January to August 2015. Upon successful completion, Fellows will earn a significant number of CLE credits, and the program is provided at no charge to participants.

Please consider applying or referring a colleague. This is an exceptional opportunity for professional development and for discovering a vehicle to becoming involved with the Bar and legal community. The deadline for applications and nominations for the 2015 Washington Leadership Institute must be received at the UW Law office no later than September 19, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Application and nomination forms and instructions are available to download at this link.

On behalf of our Advisory Board, we thank you in advance for your interest and support.
