The role of the ABA Representative is to serve, along with the SBA President, as one of the school’s two official voting delegates to the ABA Law Student Division Assembly—the policy‐making body of the Division. The Assembly convenes annually at the ABA Annual Meeting to review and to vote on policy issues affecting law students, legal education, and the legal profession. The Assembly delegates also elect the Division’s three delegates to the ABA House of Delegates, and the SBA Presidents also elect the Division’s Vice Chair‐SBA.
As an official delegate, the ABA Representative advocates on behalf of the ABA Law Student Division members at the school and serve as the school’s point person to the ABA Law Student Division, including when issues relating to legal education and legal education standards are up for review and comment. The ABA Representatives also promotes the ABA at their school and communicates the benefits and value of ABA membership in an effort to actively recruit and enroll new members.
