Student Board



The Student Board is composed of students from law schools across the globe. The Student Board works in tandem with the Student Engagement Committee to assist law students in starting and strengthening their local law school chapters. The Student Board informs students of JRCLS events, provides training and resources, and encourages students in their JRCLS efforts. Board members also represent student perspectives on JRCLS professional administration committees, such as Women in Law and Religious Freedom.
