As a student member of the American Psychology-Law Society, you can take advantage of several benefits that we have to offer. Throughout the year, we will be highlighting different resources available to you and how to make the most of them beyond the Annual Conference. This first edition of the series introduces you to one of our many resources offered via our website: webinars and blogs.
One of the most exciting times on the Student Committee is election time. Each year, elections are held for one of several positions open on the Student Committee. Student Affiliates are encouraged to submit self-nominations via the Student Committee Election page, where they can also find information on how elections are run, deadlines, and position descriptions.
If Student Affiliates want to know who their current Student Committee members are, you can find them under the “About” section or click here. As an Affiliate, serving on the Student Committee is an excellent opportunity to advance initiatives, make strong connections within AP-LS, and gain meaningful leadership experience that directly impacts the field of law and psychology. Other projects that Student Committee members work on include programming during the Annual Conference (e.g., the student social and Fun Run), webinars on topics of the Student Committee’s design, social media presence, and other valuable resources.
After submitting nominations and platforms, election surveys will be distributed to Student Affiliates. New Student Committee members will transition at the APA Annual Conference each year to begin their term.
Whether you’re a Student Affiliate or you are successfully elected to a Student Committee position, your participation is valuable and we hope you get the most out of your Student Affiliate status with AP-LS. As always, please feel free to reach out with suggestions or questions anytime by e-mailing the Student Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
