SCCLA’s law student representatives are an integral part of SCCLA. The Board relies upon our law student representatives to be liaisons with local law schools, which is essential in our provision of mentorship and scholarship activities and connecting with the next generation of APA lawyers.  Because of the nature of the role, we strongly prefer candidates who attend law school in Southern California.

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, publicizing, and volunteering at SCCLA events, including the annual installation banquet; attending monthly board meetings; enhancing law student participation with SCCLA; and other projects with the Board. 

Email with any questions.
