Assembly Caucuses


Caucuses provide a forum for like-minded law students to connect, promote awareness of specific issues to law students across the country, and explore legislative options within the ABA.

Members of the caucuses use ABA Communities to collaborate, an online platform where members can network, exchange ideas, get advice and discuss information with each other.

Join one or more of the caucuses listed by clicking on each link below. Sign in using your ABA member login information to be directed to each community.

About ABA Communities

ABA Communities was selected for its ease of use and the ability for you to:

  • Join committees and groups of interest to you
  • Update your profile and the information that others see about you
  • Participate in discussions within groups
  • Access important files made available by staff liaisons
  • RSVP for group events and seamlessly add them to your calendar
  • Keep current with groups activities by receiving a daily digest of activity
