Kamilla Rodrigues Named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity 2022 Fellow
Herrick is pleased to announce that real estate associate Kamilla B. Rodrigues was selected as a member of the 2022 class of Fellows by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), a program created to identify, train and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession.
"This is a singular honor for Kamilla," said Belinda Schwartz, Chair of Herrick's Real Estate Department. "She joins a select group of experienced attorneys from diverse backgrounds who have been recognized for their potential to become leaders in their organizations and in the wider profession."
LCLD President Robert J. Grey Jr. added that, while the LCLD Fellows program "requires a serious time commitment from its participants, they will come away from it having learned from top leaders in the legal profession, as well as experts in the fields of learning and development and executive coaching, on what it means to be a leader."
Kamilla is one of 426 Fellows named to the 2022 class. Selected from among LCLD member corporations and law firms, she will participate in virtual and in-person class meetings, with opportunities to interact with key legal and business leaders of large U.S. corporations, and leadership lunches hosted by LCLD Member organizations featuring a managing partner or general counsel.
Celebrating 11 years, the LCLD Fellows program has built a reputation for helping to launch participants into chief legal positions. More than 50 alumni of the program have become general counsel, managing partners or judges, or have opened their own firms since their fellowship year.
