The program is focused on developing leadership skills in emerging leaders via monthly workshops and activities to address legal and community issues. This year 22 nominated attorneys with three to eight years of experience who practice in Davidson County were selected to participate. The program for the Class of 2022 begins in September 2021 and concludes in May 2022.
