The Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy (CBLA) is an annual leadership academy for diverse bar leaders from each of the CBLA member organizations: the American Bar Association (“ABA”), Hispanic National Bar Association, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (“NAPABA”), National Bar Association (“NBA”), National LGBT Bar (“LGBT Bar”), and the National Native American Bar Association (“NNABA”).
Through this collaboration, the CBLA aims to strengthen the pipeline of diverse bar association leaders through leadership training and professional development programs. The CBLA benefits current and future bar leaders, the bar association community, and the legal profession overall, and lays the foundation for further collaborative efforts by the sponsoring bar associations to foster diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. This year's program will be in June 23-25, 2019 in Denver, Colorado.
CBLA is intended for:
• Up-and-coming bar leaders who have been in practice for 5-15 years.
