Madrid Selected for Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy

July 6, 2021

The American Bar Association selected McGuireWoods Pittsburgh partner Alexander Madrid to participate in its 2021 Collaborative Bar Leadership Academy (CBLA) providing professional development programs and networking for diverse lawyers “to benefit current and future leaders of bar associations, and the legal profession overall.” The program took place virtually June 28-30.

The CBLA is a joint initiative of the ABA, its Commissions on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession and Disability Rights, the Hispanic National Bar Association, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, the National Bar Association, the National LGBT Bar Association, the National Native American Bar Association, and the South Asian Bar Association of North America.

This year’s CBLA hosted panel discussions featuring giants in the profession speaking on topics such as how to advance as a leader, fiduciary responsibilities of board members, bar leadership, how to change industries or employers, and how to increase diversity on the bench and on corporate and charity boards.

Madrid, a member of McGuireWoods’ Complex Commercial Litigation Department, represents some of the nation’s largest broker-dealers, financial institutions and other corporate clients on a range of regulatory and enforcement actions, arbitration and litigation.
