ABA 3L Week celebrating graduating law students to take place April 17-23

CHICAGO, March 15, 2023 — The American Bar Association will observe ABA 3L Week from April 17-23.

All law schools are encouraged to provide programming and resources to their 3Ls to celebrate law students preparing to graduate and take the bar. Law schools interested in participating in ABA 3L Week can find out how with this toolkit.

ABA 3L Week will include several opportunities and resources for graduating 3L students, including programming that offers practical advice and strategies for those preparing to sit for the July bar exam.

In addition, every graduating 3L who signs up for their first professional ABA membership ($75) between April 17-23 will receive a “Bar Prep Care Package.” Those who sign up during the celebration will also be entered into a drawing for Amazon® gift cards up to $500 and a grand prize of a travel package to the ABA Annual Meeting in Denver, August 2-8.

“Becoming a full ABA member sets new lawyers up with access to professional development tools and resources to jumpstart their professional success,” said ABA President Deborah Enix-Ross. “New lawyers will have immediate access to hundreds of articles, webinars, podcast episodes and CLE to help them settle into their new career.”
