SLU LAW Enrolls Entire Student Body into ABA
October 9, 2012

As part of his efforts to give law students access to opportunities that will further their education and careers, Saint Louis University School of Law Dean Tom Keefe has generously donated funds to enroll all SLU LAW students into the American Bar Association's (ABA) Law Student Division for the 2012-2013 school year. The School of Law is just the fifth school in the country to claim full enrollment.

"This is just one of many steps we take in our constant efforts to help our students not only find jobs, but to act and feel like young lawyers, and have the best possible law school experience," said Keefe. "We believe we have a duty to both our students and the community to produce lawyers who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running, and this is just another step in that process."

For the 836 students enrolled, the benefits are substantial, from seeking funding for new events (ABA Grant Funding), student groups looking for exciting speakers (ABA Speakers Database) or individual students becoming involved with like-minded legal professionals in various ABA Committees and Sections.

"We are so grateful to Dean Keefe for this gift," said Clif Martin, ABA representative for the Student Bar Association. "There is so much value to students no matter what level of their education they're in, whether it's access to research to assist with a faculty fellowship or exploring different practice areas of the law they wouldn't otherwise have the time or ability to invest."
