The American Bar Association announced yesterday that "effective immediately," it would offer free membership to all students enrolled in ABA-approved law schools. ABA membership, which previously cost students $25, offers a wealth of benefits geared to a law student's career interests and development. For example, students will have access to the ABA Job Board, with listings for clerkships and internships as well as other positions, and a resume posting service. Career advice webinars, networking events, CLE opportunities, free subscriptions, and product discounts are among the other valuable membership benefits. Law students can apply online for ABA membership here, or by phone by calling the ABA Service Center.
