NCCU Law Named Top Law School in ABA’s August Campaign for Student Membership

Posted on Friday, September 9, 2011

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Law has been named one of the top ten law schools in the nation for the American Bar Association’s August campaign for Law Student Division Membership.

On Sept. 7, 2011, Jillian Mack ’12 and nine other American Bar Association (ABA) Representatives were applauded for their recruitment efforts by Jill Werner, the Director of Membership for the ABA’s Law Students/Young Lawyers  Division.

“The nine of you are incredible, and the ABA is lucky to have you as representatives on your campuses,” said Werner.

Mack recently offered the following tip to assist other ABA representatives with their recruitment efforts:

You have to sell yourself; students need to know who you are and that the information you provide them is credible.  At the end of your conversations with students, they not only know about the ABA’s purpose and what it can do for them but they also know your name and how much you believe in the organization.  They will be more likely to sign up that way.

A first-year NCCU Law student, who stopped by a tabling event earlier this week, confirmed Mack’s dedication to ABA recruitment by telling her, “I feel like you are the ABA.”

Congratulations to Jillian Mack on a job well done!
