NBF Leadership Forum
The Nashville Bar Foundation has established the NBF Leadership Forum—a local leadership program for lawyers with three to eight years of experience—designed to bring together emerging leaders who participate in monthly workshops for nine months to help them realize their potential and to benefit the legal profession and our local community.
The NBF Leadership Forum offers an innovative opportunity to learn, collaborate, network and serve the local community and the legal profession. The program provides a select group—25 nominated attorneys who practice in Davidson County—with a unique setting to develop leadership skills through monthly workshops and activities focusing on local legal and community issues. The NBF Leadership Forum encourages diversity in the practice of law and helps to build relationships among attorneys with diverse backgrounds and practices.
