Future leaders in the legal profession are chosen

Montgomery, January 25, 2006 - Thirty lawyers, including 21 men and 9 women, have been selected as Class II of the Alabama Leadership Forum, now in its second year. The class will meet in Montgomery in February for the first of several all-day programs at the state bar headquarters.

The forum is designed to ensure committed and involved lawyers willing and able to fill significant leadership roles in the state bar and in local bar associations, in their community and in-state organizations, and to serve as role models in matters of ethics and professionalism.

Seventy-one applications were received representing private, government and corporate attorneys across the state. The firms represented in the applications included small, mid-size and large firms as well as solo practitioners.

The February program entitled Principles of Leadership, will open with welcoming remarks from Bobby Segall, president of the Alabama State Bar, and Keith Norman, executive director. Other all day Friday sessions scheduled are Leadership through Service in March and Ethics, Justice and Values in April. The last session will be held in May featuring the program topic of Professionalism. and the graduation banquet will be held in the evening.

Alyce M. Spruell of Tuscaloosa, who co-chaired the inaugural Leadership Forum 2005 program, and Birmingham attorney Tripp Haston, a member of the inaugural class, serve as co-chairs of this year's forum.
