YLD Presents Awards, Hosts Law Student Leadership Group

The Young Lawyers Division Board met in conjunction with the TBA Leadership Conference this past weekend. In addition to conducting its winter board meeting, the group presented the 2015 CASA Volunteer of the Year Award to Jane Hickman with CASA of Robertson County and recognized several volunteer lawyers for their work.

The YLD Diversity Committee also held the opening session for this year’s Diversity Leadership Institute. The class of 18 law students participated in the weekend’s leadership programming and heard from U.S. District Court Judge Pam Reeves on the “10 Commandments of Leadership.” The group will meet again in March and June.
