Applications are open for the 2021-2022 class of the CMBA Leadership Academy. Deadline for application is July 30th, 2021.

The CMBA's 10-month, selective and highly-regarded program provides leadership and professional development for anyone with a minimum of 5 years of legal experience.

"I found the CMBA Leadership Academy to be a rewarding experience and I highly recommend it.  The candidates were diverse, their legal backgrounds unique and the program offered a good mix of seasoned and newer attorneys.  Each program offered a wide array of exceptional leaders and speakers which challenged the candidates to critically examine how leaders can motivate and empower others.  Throughout the program, I learned some things about myself but learned so much more from my colleagues."
Joseph T. Burke
Partner, Polito Rodstrom Burke LLP

Candidates must have a demonstrated passion for the profession and civic engagement, a genuine commitment to expanding leadership development, and an excitement for building relationships with a broad cross-section of lawyers and leaders in greater Cleveland.

Academy Calendar for the 2021-2022 Year:

  • Kickoff: Thursday, September 23, 2021
  • Monthly Sessions are typically held on Thursdays, with the exception of the Annual Meeting
  • Graduation: 15th Annual Meeting, June TBD, 2022
