Reps who successfully recruit students are eligible for a rewards program. https://abaforlawstudents.com/why-join/become-a-leader/reps/ Further, ABA Reps typically attend the ABA conference: https://abaforlawstudents.com/events/annual-meeting/ BU Law has funds available (upon application) to support attendance at this conference by the ABA Student Representative in August 2018. Due to the timing of the conference, we suggest this role would be best suited to a current member of the Class of 2019 who will serve during the 2017-2018 school year, and transition leadership to the next representative in January of 2019. Interested students should e-mail Student Affairs at studaff@bu.edu by 5:00 pm on Monday, October 23, with a statement of interest (3-5 sentences) and a resume.

31) Conversation Partner Program
(top)
Where: Anywhere you want!
What: Thank you for your interest in the BU Law Joint JD/LLM Volunteer Conversation Partner Program (CPP) for 2017-2018. The volunteer CPP is an opportunity for JD and LLM students to meet an (1)hour a week on their own time and work on conversational skills. The emphasis of the program is conversational English for non-native English speakers (foreign LLM), while also providing JD students an opportunity to meet with those from another country and work on their cultural competency skills. Cultural competency is especially important in the growing international legal world, as well as is making connections in the legal field, and these meet-ups provide students from all different cultural backgrounds an opportunity to meet one-on-one with someone from a different country and learn about their different cultures. It is not a requirement for JD students to speak or know a second language or want to learn a second language in order to participate as a volunteer in the program (one can speak only in English when meeting if that is preferred). We have a strong need for students interested in meeting with LLM students whose native language is Mandarin Chinese. We do not guarantee a partner, but we hope to pair as many people as possible. If you have any questions about the program, please email, Senior Legal Information Librarian Shira Megerman, megerman@bu.ed The form to sign-up can be found at: https://goo.gl/forms/3OfFKK0ORTY4zsZL2 .
