American Bar Association (ABA)

Description:
The primary purpose of the ABA Representative is to advocate on behalf of ABA Law Student Division members at their school, serve as the school’s point person on the ABA and the Law Student Division, to promote the ABA and Law Student Division, and to communicate the benefits and value of ABA membership at their school. The success of the Division depends on the involvement and commitment of ABA representatives. This is especially critical when issues relating to legal education and legal education standards are up for review and comment. The Division relies on the Reps and the SBAs to relay this information to their fellow law students and to provide the Division with input on behalf of their school.

Miami Law students will find many benefits to engaging with the ABA while in law school, whether for professional networking, learning about many substantive areas of the law, and for the benefits offered including well-being resources.
