Evansville, IN 47708
The ISBA Leadership Development Academy (LDA) inaugural class will honor former Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard and his longtime service to the community by presenting him with a plaque to hang outside the “Randall T. Shepard Courtroom” in the Old Courthouse. The plaque will provide biographical information and context for the courtroom dedication, which occurred in 2011. Additionally, the LDA inaugural class will provide an endowment to the Evansville Bar Foundation for the creation of a Shepard Lecture Series, which will bring influential speakers to Evansville to present on topics such as the rule of law, professionalism and leadership.
The Academy is a statewide leadership program established to empower and develop lawyers to be informed, committed and involved so that they may fill significant leadership roles in local and state bar associations, local communities and organizations and to serve as role models in matters of ethics and professionalism. The 25 members participate in five sessions featuring professional facilitators and prominent speakers from various disciplines to inform participants about leadership principles and techniques, the importance of effective leaders in organizations to maximize efficiency and effectiveness, and the challenges and rewards of leadership in action.
