The New Jersey State Bar Association welcomed 10 attorneys as the second class of fellows to its Leadership Academy, including McCarter & English’s Onome Adejemilua.
The selected attorneys represent all corners of the legal community, belonging to large and mid-size firms to government service to solo practices, and hailing from all parts of the state.
“The association is excited to welcome another class of fellows to the Leadership Academy. As we saw with our inaugural class, this year will offer the fellows a rich learning opportunity that will help them become the next generation of diverse and inclusive leaders, who will be available for leadership and service to the association; state, federal and local entities; other bar associations and groups that make up the fabric of our society,” said NJSBA President Thomas H. Prol.
In the coming year, they will be required to take part in several interactive programs that will explore how to craft a strategic plan, how to effectively communicate, the issues facing the legal profession, and how organizations and government entities work. They will also work on a special project to be presented at the culmination of the year in the spring.
