IU McKinney's Jenn Bartick Elected to Vice Chair of ABA's Law Student Division
Jenn Bartick, a 2L at IU McKinney, has been elected Vice Chair of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Law Student Division. She was elected to the post March 16 during the division’s board of governor’s meeting in Charleston, S.C. She will take over the post during the ABA’s annual meeting in August.
In the position, Bartick will be part of a national board of four members for the student division tasked with increasing the division’s membership and providing leadership on issues critical to law students and law schools.
“Not only will I be in charge of producing better membership numbers, but I will also be dealing with policies that may pass through our Law Student Division Board of Governors that affect all ABA-accredited law schools,” Bartick said. “These topics vary from externship policies to social media violations.”
Originally from San Diego, California, Bartick graduated early from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. She taught on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico for six months, which she calls “one of the most unique experiences of my life.”
After law school, she wants to be a criminal defense attorney “in a more temperate climate,” she jokes.
