Created by the LCLD, the Fellowsprogram identifies, trains, and advances men and women that are next-generation leaders in the legal field.

″The program offers participants a year-long, in-depth experience devoted to relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership and the best teachers in the business,″ says LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr.

Complementing the Fellows program, the LCLD Pathfinders program was created for high-performing, early-career attorneys to help instill critical career development strategies including leadership and network building.
