Guthrie attorney Kyle Moon is among 18 future leaders of Oklahoma’s legal community who have been selected to receive training in leadership, motivation and communication as members of the Oklahoma Bar Association Leadership Academy class of 2019-2020.
The academy participants were chosen from a pool of applicants spanning the state.
“Building quality leaders is important,” OBA President Chuck Chesnut of Miami said. “Participation in this academy helps individuals enhance their knowledge and skills, giving them tools to be better lawyers and leaders, which benefits their communities and the legal profession.”
Moon is an attorney at Raptor Petroleum and has practiced law for the past seven years. He graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Law.
Originating from the OBA’s Leadership Conference in 2007, the academy is aimed at developing the future leaders of the OBA by giving Oklahoma attorneys training in the core principles of effective leadership and how to communicate, motivate and succeed in their legal careers and also as community leaders.
The OBA Leadership Academy includes four sessions, the first of which took place Sept. 13. The academy will conclude in April 2020. Sessions will be led by experienced leaders from various backgrounds including military officers, former OBA presidents, leadership experts and high-profile public officials.
The 18,000-member Oklahoma Bar Association, headquartered in Oklahoma City, was created by the Oklahoma Supreme Court to advance the administration of justice and to foster and maintain learning, integrity, competence, public service and high standards of conduct among Oklahoma’s legal community.
