Toledo Bar Association Receives National Award for Community and Educational Outreach Program

August 20, 2019 – San Francisco, California

 

Toledo Bar Association was awarded the 2019 LexisNexis Community and Educational Outreach Award for the Fellowship Collaborative on Thursday, August 9, 2019 in San Francisco, California. This award was presented by the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) and honors outstanding bar public service and law-related education programs and was received by Bradley J. Lagusch, Executive Director of the Toledo Bar Association.

The Toledo Bar Association, in partnership with Toledo Legal Aid Society, and University of Toledo College of Law, created the Fellowship Collaborative to help mentor, guide, and train recently admitted attorneys so that they have the tools and resources to practice law in the Toledo area. The goal of this fellowship is to not only provide new lawyers with the support and guidance to start their own practice, but also help provide access to justice to those in need in Toledo.

During this twelve month program, each fellow can be employed part-time through the Toledo Legal Aid Society, and spend the remainder of their time establishing and opening a private practice in the Toledo area. The Toledo Bar Association provides the fellows with office space, a laptop computer, access to law practice management software, virtual law office set up and support, and website and logo design assistance. The Fellows are also provided with bi-monthly training seminars, organized by the University of Toledo College of Law and the Toledo Bar Association. These seminars cover topics such as law office management and ethics, along with substantive topics, including domestic relations and probate law. Each seminar is taught by a local attorney expert, and provides the fellows with firsthand knowledge of how to practice law in Toledo. The Toledo Bar Association is very proud of the work being done through the Fellowship Collaborative, and believes strongly in its mission to help new attorneys develop their practice in Toledo.
