Governor’s Message

Dear 11th Circuit Members,

Welcome to the 11th Circuit webpage. On behalf of the ABA Law Student Division and the 11th Circuit, I thank you for being a part of the American Bar Association to experience the benefits of Law Student Division membership. Division membership provides a unique opportunity to refine the tools you need to succeed in your career and has job listings, clerkships, internships, and resources tailored to students’ needs.

If you are new to the ABA or interested in joining, now is the time to be a part of the premier organization for law students in our nation’s capital! Whether you are in your first, second, or third year of law school, the Law Student Division and the 11th Circuit have something to offer you

I look forward to working with, and on behalf of, the law students in the greater Washington metropolitan region.
