Vol. 39 No. 6
Beginning in February, law students from across the country will meet to learn professional skills, network with experienced lawyers, and help determine the future direction of the ABA Law Student Division.
Law students from across the country will meet this month to learn valuable professional skills, network with experienced lawyers, and help chart the direction of the ABA Law Student Division.
The Division consists of 15 circuits, each of which will host a regional meeting. At these meetings, law students in each circuit will elect a fellow student to serve as the circuit’s governor for the 2011–12 academic year. Registration for the Spring Meetings is free and the benefits of participating are invaluable.
“I encourage all law students to attend their respective circuit meetings. It is a wonderful opportunity to interact and establish contacts at peer institutions as well as benefit from the awesome programming,” says Kevin Johnson, a third-year student at the University of Alabama School of Law who is chair of the Law Student Division.
Only Student Bar Association presidents, representatives, or their proxies may vote in the elections for Circuit Governor, but the Spring Meetings are open to all students interested in learning how to get the most out of their legal education.
