Vorys is pleased to annouce that Emily Pan, a partner in the Vorys Cincinnati office and a member of the trusts and estates group, has been selected to be a member of the 2017 class of Fellows, participating in a landmark program created by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.

According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Fellows Program offers participants “an extraordinarily rich year of relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership.”

Additionally, Nita Garg, an associate in the Vorys Houston office and a member of the health care group, was selected as a member of the 2017 class of Pathfinders. This LCLD program trains early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies including leadership and the building of professional networks.

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 260 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. The LCLD Fellows program, which has trained more than a thousand mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD’s most important initiatives.
