Amidst a pandemic, Dade Legal Aid launched Class VI of the Dade Legal Aid (“DLA”) Leadership Academy bringing together young leaders of our community whose distinguished resumes reflect their accomplishments as well as their concerns for the profession.  They have excelled in their areas of practice, accepted pro bono cases, hosted events, and pledged to do more for the community.  The goals of the Academy are to enhance the members’ leadership skills and civic engagement by connecting Fellows with Legal Leaders of influential firms, members of the judiciary and clients in need. During the year, will develop a deeper understanding about issues facing Dade Legal Aid clients and the indigent in our community.  Meet our 2021 Fellows:
