In the March 18-31, 2009 edition of Indiana Lawyer, attorney/mediator Elisabeth Edwards is quoted in a feature on the Indianapolis Bar Leader Series. The article, written by Phil Isenbarger, chair of the Bar Leader Series VI, discusses the benefits for young attorneys who are selected to participate in the series. Ms. Edwards, an alum of the Bar Leader Series Class IV, shared her experience, ‘”The Bar Leader Series has provided me with priceless networking opportunities and friendships with talented attorneys who are outside of my area of practice, and with whom I would not normally have crossed paths but for the program. We have become a tremendously valuable resource to one another to better serve our clients.”‘
In addition to receiving mentoring and traditional leadership focused presentations, participants cooperate together in teams to coordinate service projects which benefit the Indianapolis community. There are numerous projects in this year’s series, including Peyton Manning’s Children’s Hospital Family Home and Second Helpings. Laura Holt, also an attorney in JHDJ Law’s Family Law Practice Group, is a member of this year’s Bar Leader Series VI, and will graduate in May.
