The purpose of the Leadership Academy, an initiative of CAOC's Diversity Committee, is to give CAOC members the skills and techniques needed to make them effective leaders in CAOC, their professional settings and in their communities. The Leadership Academy will select only 20 plaintiff trial lawyers representing various backgrounds and practice areas to attend all four virtual sessions. Tuition is $200.
