Applications for the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum are now open! If you are in good standing and have practiced law for not less than five years, and for not more than 15 years, as of January 1, 2018 (based upon first admission to any state bar) please consider applying by October 16, 2017.

The Forum is honored as a dynamic and highly effective model for nurturing and developing leadership skills and values among a select group of qualified, promising lawyers each year. Now in its 14th year, the Alabama State Bar Leadership Forum has illuminated a pathway for other state bars and legal organizations recognizing the need for servant-minded bar and community leadership.

Following receipt of all applications, the Selection Committee comprised of Leadership Forum alumni and other distinguished members of the Bar, will review the applications using the following criteria to make the initial selection decisions, with special emphasis upon the first two criteria:


   1.  Demonstrated leadership ability based on accomplishments and current engagements;

   2.  An understanding of the importance of servant leadership as demonstrated in the applicant’s narrative;

   3.  Previous application to the Leadership Forum;

   4.  Practice diversity (criminal, civil, governmental and corporate);

   5.  Geographic diversity; and

   6.  Racial and gender diversity.


The Board of Bar Commissioners will meet on December 8, 2017 to consider the Selection Committee’s recommendations. Notification letters for acceptance into the program will be mailed the week of December 11. For more information, contact, or Edward M. Patterson, Assistant Executive Director,
