Attorney Philip M. Hernandez has been selected as a 2017 Fellow of the New Leaders Council (NLC). The NLC is a non-profit organization that works to recruit, train and promote the progressive political entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The Council selects fellows from outside traditional power structures who are active trendsetters, and elected officials and innovators in business and industry, and supplies them with the skills necessary to be civic leaders in their communities and workplaces.
An associate in Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, Phil will be working as a part of the NLC’s Oakland Chapter, which only names 15 fellows per year. Through this Fellowship, Phil will spend the next five months engaging with young progressives from a multitude of backgrounds on trainings related to political campaigns, fundraising, media, grassroots organizing, and leadership.
