NWKT partner, Bains Fleming, has been selected as a member of Class IX of the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum.
State Bar President Phillip W. McCallum of Birmingham said, “The Leadership Forum is an innovative leadership-training program providing participants with a rigorous education and training that includes leadership, ethics, and career development. It includes sessions that prepare participants for interaction and relationship building with members of the legal, judicial, and legislative sectors as well as diverse organizations and communities in the state.”
This year, the state bar received 58 applications from private practitioners, government and corporate lawyers throughout the state. These applicants included practitioners in small, medium and large-size firms as well as sole practitioners.
After a detailed selection process, nine women and 21 men were selected. While there is no age requirement, participants must have practiced law for not less than five nor more than 15 years. Candidates are selected based on demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and service to their communities.
