Nick Guinn, St. Mary’s University School of Law third-year law student and Student Bar Association (SBA) president, was elected to a national position at this summer’s American Bar Association (ABA) Annual Meeting in Chicago. He was elected vice chair of Student Bar Associations in the ABA’s Law Student Division, where he will serve as virtual president of the nation’s student bar associations and oversee all association activity.
Guinn, who applied to the position in the spring and campaigned at the Annual Meeting, is excited to begin this endeavor and glean SBA best practices to bring back to St. Mary’s School of Law.
“I am more than honored to serve St. Mary’s in this capacity and look forward to taking the strengths of SBAs across the country and putting them together for the greater good,” said Guinn.
The ABA explains the importance of this role as ‘the SBA is to the Law Student Division what a State Bar Association is to the American Bar Association’.
