Participate in the Activities of Your Bar Association

At the American Bar Association, Sections, Divisions and Forum Committees draw their membership from law professionals with common professional interests, and operate much like independent bar associations with their own officers, dues and committees. They address professional development, improvement of laws, and continuing education through the work of committees, publications, periodicals and journals.

Many ABA Sections, Divisions and Forums offer free or substantially reduced law student membership fees.
