Bar Associations & Professional Organizations

Many bar associations and professional organizations offer student memberships at a free or discounted rate. As a student member, you may attend meetings and events just as attorney members do. Students who actively participate in bar association activities show initiative and motivation to get involved - two traits that are looked upon favorably by the attorneys you will meet!

These are just an example of the organizations you may want to join.  Talk with us in the Career Services Office if you need assistance identifying other bar associations or organizations of interest.
