Law Student Division
Laura Abril, Florida International University College of Law, ’20, is the new chair of the Law Student Division, succeeding Elaina Marino ’19, of Syracuse Law School. Laura will be joined on the LSD executive committee by Bailey Simmons, ’21, and Sabrina Worsham, ’20, both of whom are from the University of Arkansas School of Law. Contact Bailey Simmons if you are interested in forming a Law Student Division chapter at your school.
MILS will begin offering online continuing legal education on May 1. Initial offerings will include mindfulness and yoga, but will also include other contemplative practices and lawyer well-being as we continue to grow these areas. Many of our initial programs qualify for ethics, substance abuse, or professionalism credit. Contact Lee Holcomb if you have a recorded program that has been approved for CLE in your state that you would like to offer through the MILS CLE program.
