Effective immediately, the American Bar Association will offer free membership to all students enrolled at ABA-approved law schools. The membership grants law students access to resources tailored to their interests and needs, opportunities to build their professional skills plus access to the ABA’s job listings, clerkships, internships and career events.
Through the ABA’s Law Student Division, students can also take advantage of leadership training, public service opportunities, career development programming and practical skills competitions.
“The American Bar Association provides today’s law students -- the future of our profession -- with solid support and a strong foundation from which they can launch successful careers,” ABA President William C. Hubbard said. “It’s exciting that now all law students will be able to tap into the impressive ABA community and services to enhance their law school experience. Through their ABA membership, students will find resources tailored to their interests and needs, opportunities to build their professional skills, plus access to the ABA’s job listings, clerkships, internships, career events and national network of America’s top lawyers.”
More than 119,000 law students across the country are eligible for the free membership. The ABA will work with law schools to explain simple enrollment processes. Law students can enroll online at www.americanbar.org/abalawstudents or by calling the ABA Service Center at 800-285-2221.
