Pennsylvania Bar Association – Student Membership
The Pennsylvania Bar Association is a wonderful organization and student membership is free of charge. The PBA provides students the opportunity to gain valuable professional experiences through involvement in our sections and committees, engagement with practicing lawyers and members of the judiciary, and participating in our service projects such as Wills for Heroes, the High School Mock Trial Competition and our soon-to-be launched Constitution initiative. Our new E-Mentorship Program between the Young Lawyers Division and our law student members will provide another avenue for students to gain additional support and professional growth through contact with practicing, successful attorneys who are not too far out of law school themselves. The PBA law student application is available online and you can access the application here: http://www.pabar.org/site/
