LA GRANGE – La Grange resident Paula H. Holderman became the 137th president of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) last Friday at the organization's annual meeting in Lake Geneva, Wis. 

Holderman, the chief attorney development officer for Winston & Strawn in Chicago, will be responsible for ISBA's professional development and training for its 900 lawyers. She will concentrate on four projects, including member services and diversity. With her guidance, ISBA launched a summer legal immersion program for high school students. 

“We will show the legal community that ISBA membership is not only relevant, but the one membership that an Illinois lawyer needs,” Holderman said in a release. 

Holderman is the James C. Wood Distinguished Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law at the University of Illinois College of Law. She is also a board member of the Illinois Supreme Court's governing body on Minimum Continuing Legal Education. 

ISBA has 32,000 members and maintains offices in Springfield and Chicago.
