OSBA law school student associate membership is open to any law school student (excluding LL.M. candidates) enrolled in an American Bar Association accredited law school.
Law school students may join the OSBA for free. Membership benefits for students include the weekly OSBA Report online, Ohio Lawyer and Law Student News publications; access to Casemaker—OSBA's online legal research tool that is free for members; an online legal career center; and much more.
Law student members may choose to join a section or committee that focuses on a specific area of the law. Sections require a payment of only $9 each for law school students, which covers the cost the whole time you are in school. Committee membership is free.
