Volunteer and Networking Opportunity in Miami Through the ABA

Interested in corporate law or being in-house counsel?  Want to network with attorneys in the field?  There is an exciting ABA volunteer opportunity coming to South Beach.


16th Annual National Institute on Negotiating Business Acquisitions

November 10-11, 2011

Miami Beach, FL

 

ABA OnRamps allows law students to attend ABA conferences and have their registration fee waived in exchange for their services.  This is a great way to serve the profession while learning valuable legal info not often taught in law school.

Students are not expected to attend the entire conference.  Instead, you can volunteer in shifts based on your availability.  When not volunteering, students are free to either attend the conference or return to campus for class if necessary.  Plus, volunteers are free to attend all conference receptions.  With the number of practicing attorneys expected, this will be an exciting networking opportunity.

Duties will vary for each event.  Primarily, student volunteers help prepare conference materials, aid with various registration tables, and attend panels to collect CLE registration forms.  Again, outside their volunteer commitment, students are free to attend or free to leave.

Any ABA members who would like to volunteer must email their name, address, phone, email, ABA# and the days and times you are able to volunteer to the Law Student Division Delegate in charge of the ABA OnRamps initiative this year.  Non-ABA members may also volunteer; however, preference will be given to ABA members.  Space is available on a first-come-first-served basis.
