ABA’s Law Student Division Elects Alabama Law Student as Vice Chair

August 8, 2018

Taurus Myhand, 3L, was recently elected as the 2018-2019 national Vice Chair of the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division.

Myhand will lead the ABA’s efforts to reach, recruit, and engage law students across the country through meaningful events, programming, and content. He will serve on the greater ABA’s Standing Committee on Membership and will travel to Chicago, Las Vegas, and San Francisco to attend conferences as he represents the 110,000 students of the nation’s 204 ABA-accredited law schools.

Law Student Division delegates serve as a voting member of the ABA House of Delegates, the policy-making body of the association. The House meets twice each year, at ABA Annual and Mid-year Meetings. They are responsible for representing the interests of the Division.

“The ABA gave me my first internship through the Judicial Intern Opportunity Program,” Myhand said. “A judge that would otherwise not have even known my name called and asked me to intern in Miami, Florida. Now, it is my turn to help connect others to job opportunities that will change their lives.”

Myhand is completing work as a summer associate at Copeland, Franco, Screws & Gill, P.A. in Montgomery. He interned for the Honorable Barbara Areces of the 11th Judicial Circuit Court in Miami in 2017.
