ABA Law Student Division delegates Andrew Rhoden (left) and Zac Berkstresser were elected last year at the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago.

You have less than a month to apply to join the ABA Law Student Division’s leadership team. There are four positions open – Vice Chair of Student Bar Associations and three division delegates to the ABA House of Delegates. Today, we’d like to talk about the delegate openings.

Today, we’re focusing on the delegates. The three delegates are responsible for attending and participating in each House of Delegates meeting, where they represent the interests of the Law Student Division. They are also officers on the Law Student Board of Governors.

This is one of the most important and prestigious positions a law student can hold in the ABA, interacting closely with high-ranking officials in the ABA.

Here to talk about them are two of our three current delegates, Zac Berkstresser and Andrew Rhoden in this video about their roles, what the work entails, and the benefits the role has offered to them.

Applications are due June 15. So if you’re interested in formulating policy in a high-profile position within the ABA, don’t wait to get your application in!
