It is important for attorneys to stay current with the law, and I encourage the firm’s members to participate in continuing education and networking opportunities through professional associations and other occasions.
Associate Brody Ockander was recently selected for the Nebraska State Bar Association Leadership Academy. As stated by the NSBA, the leadership academy’s mission is “to develop the leadership skills of the participants to allow them to make greater contributions to the legal profession and their community.”
Academy goals include the following, according to the NSBA:
- To nurture effective leadership with respect to ethical, professional and community service issues
- To build relationships among legal leaders from across the state and from across disciplines within the profession
- To raise the level of awareness among lawyers regarding the broad range of issues facing the legal profession
- To enhance the diversity of leaders within the legal profession and the community as a whole
Discussion topics for the group will include Effective Leadership; Legislative Issues; Balancing Work and Life; and Public Trust and Confidence in the Judicial System, according to the NSBA web site.
