NCBP is the leader in information exchange among bar leaders at state, local and specialty bar associations. We want bar leaders to share ideas and network with each other throughout their leadership journey. The best way to share your ideas during your term as your bar's president is through your bar journal President's Page, and NCBP wants to recognize those leaders that have shared their insights through this medium. If you or a bar leader you know has written a Bar Journal President's Page that is worthy of recognition, please share it with us!The most outstanding bar journal will be recognized at the 2020 NCBP Midyear Meeting. Entries must be received by Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, in order to be reviewed.
