“My position as ABA Student Representative for Campbell Law has given me many opportunities to network and meet people from all over the country, as well as the chance to represent the student body at the ABA Law Student Division General Assembly.” – Marshall Conrad
The American Bar Association (ABA) is the largest voluntary professional association in the world. With nearly 400,000 members, the ABA provides law school accreditation, continuing legal education, information about the law, programs to assist lawyers and judges in their work, and initiatives to improve the legal system for the public. Membership in the Law Student Division exposes students to opportunities for professional development, educational career advice, national platform opinions, national conventions, the publication The Student Lawyer, and membership in specialty interest groups within the organization. The Campbell Law chapter of the ABA seeks to educate students on the benefits of ABA membership and promote various ABA events, including, but not limited to, National Pro Bono Celebration Week and Diversity Day.
In 2011, Campbell 3L student, Jason Horrell, was selected to serve as the ABA Law Student Division 4th Circuit’s Lieutenant Governor of Diversity, working to increase awareness and appreciation for diversity in the Fourth Circuit Law Schools and in the profession.
