1Ls and LLMs: Apply to CBLA's Provisional Board

September 21, 2016
6:00 PM

The CBLA Board encourages all dues-paying 1Ls and LLMs to apply to CBLA's Provisional Board. Provisional Board members will be asked to: (1) volunteer to help at CBLA events that work with their schedule, (2) participate in the CBLA mentorship program, and (3) attend as many CBLA lunch panels as possible. At the end of the fall semester, there will be a more formal application process in which the students who have contributed most will be invited to join our board as 1L Representatives. The Provisional Board therefore serves as an opportunity to express commitment, get involved with our executive board, and show initiative.

We will give more details and answer any questions about the Provisional Board at our upcoming meeting on Monday, September 21st. You should have also received an email regarding that meeting and how to join CBLA. 

1L REPRESENTATIVES

If you are interested in becoming a Provisional Board Representative, please e-mail a short statement (up to a page double-spaced) about yourself to cbla@law.columbia.edu. In that statement, we ask that you include some information about your background (undergraduate institution, major, work experience if any, other relevant interests, etc.) and why you want to join CBLA's Provisional Board. Please send these statements by Wednesday, September 21st at 6:00pm.

LLM REPRESENTATIVES

Unlike the 1L Provisional Board, we have a selection process for LLM Board Representatives. Interested LLM students should email their resumes and a short statement of interest (up to one page) to cbla@law.columbia.edu. In your statement, please describe your background and previous work experience, your interest in joining CBLA, and one possible event that you would like to see CBLA organize in the coming year. Please send in your statements by Wednesday, September 21st at 6:00pm.
