Bookoff McAndrews partner, Dinesh N. Melwani, has been selected for the 2015 Fellows Program of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). LCLD is a national organization of members who serve as either general counsel of major corporations or managing partners of the nation’s leading law firms.

Launched in 2011, LCLD’s landmark Fellows Program works by identifying high-potential attorneys from diverse backgrounds and setting them on the path of leadership of their organizations. During his or her Fellow year, each honoree embarks on a learning program that includes in-person conferences, training in the fine points of legal practice, peer-group projects to foster collaboration and build relationships, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership, including the managing partners and general counsel who host the Fellows for Learning Experiences and Leadership Lunches. Each class of Fellows also serves as mentors to those who follow.
