USD Law Student Appointed to National Student Group
Third-year law student Abby Leach of Albert Lea, Minn., will serve two years as vice chairwoman and then one year as chairwoman of the law student reporters for the Law Student Action Group in the Intellectual Property Section of the ABA.
As part of her duties, the ABA will send Leach and 15 other law students from around the country to two ABA intellectual property conferences each year, one in Bethesda, Md., and one in Chicago at the group’s annual convention. The law student reporters will tweet, blog, and post on Facebook about the continuing legal education sessions they attend.
Leach’s appointment stemmed from her interest in patent law, and she’ll sit for the patent bar in July.
“Patent law is just one of the many diverse areas of law that students pursue. This appointment demonstrates the dedication and drive our students have and shows they operate not just on a local or regional level but also at the national level as professionals,” said Tom Geu, dean of the USD School of Law.
The Law Student Action Group (LSAG) is a committee of law students under the ABA Section of Intellectual Property, led by young lawyers and law students, whose goal is immediate broadcast of many section opportunities, including involvement in committees, publications and programming. Through LSAG, members are connected to people and experiences that can help bolster resumes, strengthen intellectual property knowledge and network with fellow IP-interested law students and IP attorneys.
