While wise people say “there’s no such thing as a free lunch,” the wisest people append to that adage “except when you’re in law school.” If you’re interested in free opportunities, including and far surpassing lunch, then be sure to attend your circuit’s Spring Meeting.
Every ABA Law Student Division circuit hosts an annual Spring Meeting, with the location rotating among member schools. Students congregate to attend valuable presentations; participate in productive roundtables; and network with students, attorneys, and judges.
Circuit meetings are fun, interactive, and entirely law student-focused. The workshops present strategies for cultivating leadership skills, distinguishing yourself in the job market, and preparing for legal practice. Circuit meetings offer something for everyone. ABA novices learn about membership benefits and opportunities, while ABA veterans nearing graduation love networking and résumé review workshops. Bring business cards or legal pads—because you’ll make tons of contacts!
SBA presidents and ABA representatives vote to elect a new circuit governor—maybe you! Prefer appointed leadership positions? Come meet the new governor, who will soon select a leadership team of lieutenant governors ranging from lieutenant governor of social media to lieutenant governor of mental health awareness.
All law students are encouraged to attend. Dates, locations, and registration details are forthcoming. Contact your circuit governor with questions or programming suggestions.
