The deadline is approaching to nominate attorneys for the 2013-2014 class of LeadershipSBOT, a diversity initiative of the State Bar of Texas.

The State Bar and Texas Young Lawyers Association are looking for 20 Texas lawyers to take part in the program, which prepares participants for leadership positions in the legal community and the State Bar. Participants are chosen to reflect the state’s cultural, ethnic, geographic, and practice-area diversity.

Created in 2008, the yearlong program consists of two training sessions and ends with the presentation of group projects during the State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting.
