Horne Completes Bar Leadership ProgramJuly 2013
Charlotte Intellectual Property Associate Patrick Horne graduated from the joint Mecklenburg County Bar/Mecklenburg Bar Foundation Bar Leadership Institute (BLI). Participants spend three months evaluating personal leadership styles, strengths and areas for development. The BLI commenced with a weekend retreat in Hickory, North Carolina, followed by a series of evening sessions that featured prominent legal and community leaders.
The BLI Class of 2013 is comprised of 20 “dynamic and diverse” individuals who practice at large, mid-sized and small firms, practice in corporate law departments, represent government and municipal agencies and serve through legal service organizations. The Class of 2013 has committed to plan and implement a Community Outreach Study to engage community leaders in discussion to formulate strategy for addressing the community’s needs through services the Bar is uniquely poised to offer.
The BLI has graduated more than 180 members of the Mecklenburg County Bar since its inception.
