The mission of The Florida Bar Leadership Academy is a multi-session training program designed to assist a diverse and inclusive group of lawyers in becoming better leaders within our profession, in their chosen path, while enhancing their leadership skills.

The Leadership Academy is open to all Florida Bar members in good standing. In an effort to achieve diversity among the participants, qualified individuals will be sought from different backgrounds, large and small firms, the private and public sectors, different practice areas, and different geographical areas of the state. There will be seven required meetings, up to 14 business days throughout the year, including graduation in June 2020 at the Bar’s Annual Convention. The programs will go from Friday midday to Saturday mid-afternoon unless otherwise indicated. CLE credit will be awarded for certain sessions.
