Committees and sections
The OSBA has 11 sections and more than 30 committees that focus on specific areas of the law. Getting involved in committee and section work as a student is an excellent way to get more involved in the OSBA. It can also assist you in determining the area of law in which you might ultimately want to practice. Committees and sections work to accomplish their goals and objectives by amending and drafting legislation and developing legal/public education and networking programs. Committees and sections also publish studies and advise the OSBA leadership in developing polices.
Committee membership is free to all interested OSBA members. Student associate members can join any section by paying the special student rate of $3 per year. Membership in the Young Lawyers Section is free for law student members.
The OSBA Insurance Agency provides all OSBA members with a variety of insurance programs at competitive rates. Individual and group medical,s hort-term medical, dental, disability, life, and business overhead insurance programs are all available to members.

The OSBA encourages student members to attend these meetings for free.
