Become an ABA Representative

ABA Rep takes selfie.


About the Position

ABA Reps are our “boots on the ground.” It’s the perfect starting role for students interested in ABA leadership. Each ABA accredited law school has an ABA Rep who is:

  • the voice of their school in the Assembly, voting on ABA Law Student Division policy and elections and
  • the advocate for ABA membership at their school.

Reps who successfully recruit students are eligible for a rewards program.


ABA Rep Selection

The selection is completely up to the law school, so contact your dean of students or current ABA Rep if you’re interested in serving as a Rep.

Reps are appointed at some schools, and elected at others. We encourage law schools to formalize an election procedure. Contact your Circuit Governor or the Vice-Chair of the Law Student Division for assistance.

The ABA Representative role can be delegated or shared by multiple representatives. But, for official ABA purposes, only a single primary contact may serve as the law school’s voting delegate.
