CLASS OF 2018 ANNOUNCED
The Class of 2018 contained more candidates than we have ever received in a single year. We were pleased to receive a relatively high number of submissions from first-year Fellows. These are sure signs the College continues to be the one place where excellence is recognized throughout the expanding facets of law practice management. Our Fellows consistently exemplify the highest standards and achievements providing each of us the opportunity to learn from the brightest and best contributors to our industry.
For a number of reasons, including the high volume of submissions, the nominations process was more challenging this year. Our deliberations were also made more complex because we considered nominees who are contributing at a high level of innovation in the practice but they have been doing so for a relatively short time or they have made outstanding contributions to their firms but not yet shared their innovations industry-wide. Those who were not successful this year may well become Fellows in the future.
At the same meeting, the Trustees began a long-range planning process. They will look at the future of the College, its programs and events as well as its processes for reviewing and selecting nominees. We look forward to sharing highlights with you at the 2018 Futures Conference.
Please join us as we induct and congratulate our Fellows-Elect at the 2018 Futures Conference dinner in Boston this October!
