Kerri RupertCollins & Lacy, P.C. is pleased to announce Kerri Rupert has graduated from the 2016 South Carolina Bar Leadership Academy.

The South Carolina Bar regards the course as a highly selective program designed to equip young lawyers (in a practice from three to ten years) with networking opportunities, professionalism training, and other skills to better position themselves in both the legal community and their community at large. For approximately six months, the class met once a month with each class focusing on a different topic. Opportunities to meet with judges and legislators while gaining insight into the skills necessary for community leadership are just some of the important benefits for participants.

“I enjoyed being part of such a wonderful class where I made lasting connections within the South Carolina Bar and developed leadership skills that will help me make a positive impact on our profession,” said Rupert. “It is definitely an experience I will take with me throughout my legal career.”

Rupert is an associate practicing professional liability at Collins & Lacy’s Columbia office. She represents healthcare providers, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, financial and investment advisors, attorneys, insurance brokers and agents in professional liability litigation. Prior to joining Collins & Lacy, Rupert served as a staff attorney at the South Carolina Court of Appeals.

“Kerri’s devotion to her practice as well as her community is reflected through her participation in this course,” said Christian Stegmaier, member of the firm’s management committee. “We are certainly proud to have Kerri within our firm family.”
