SCCLA’s law student representatives are an integral part of our Board of Governors. We rely upon our law student representatives to communicate with law schools, which is essential in our provision of mentorship and scholarship activities. 

SCCLA law student representatives obtain an inside perspective on the inner workings of a bar organization and receive the opportunity to forge invaluable connections. SCCLA law student representatives have access to valuable opportunities for: speaking engagements (e.g., moderating panels geared toward law students); personalized mentorship, references, and career advice from Board of Governors members; and unique opportunities to gain experience from the nation’s first APA bar association.    

SCCLA Law Student Representatives assist with organizing and publicizing SCCLA events, attending monthly board meetings, and enhancing law student participation with SCCLA.

Email apply@SCCLA.org with any questions.
