Congratulations to the 2010-2011 Inaugural Class of Diversity Leadership Fellows

The Diversity Leadership Fellows program had its inaugural year in 2010-2011. The goal of the Fellows program is to increase diversity in the membership of ISBA section councils, committees, and other leadership positions, to educate young lawyers about the work, structure, and policies of the ISBA, and to ultimately to develop a diverse group of future leaders of the organization. Fellows are selected for a three year term during which they serve on an ISBA section council or committee. Congratulations to the inaugural class of Fellows:
