Encourage a Student,
Paralegal, Law Office Assistant or Law Office Administrator
to Become an MSBA
The Associate category of MSBA membership was developed to encourage
participation in the MSBA from law students, law office assistants and law
office administrators. Most MSBA publications, MSBA Sections, departments
and vendor discounts are applicable to Associate members.
Associate member students are eligible for free members in the MSBA Young
Lawyers Section. The Young Lawyers Section sponsors the Career Center,
which includes an electronic system that connects employers and recruiters
with lawyers, paralegals, law clerks and administrative assistants.
All MSBA Practice Sections are open for associate members to join. Many
offer events, activities and newsletters that can assist students and
legal professionals with expanding professional knowledge and development.
Associate members (with the exception of law students) must be sponsored
by a current MSBA member. To request an associate membership application
for a colleague ($50-$75 annual fee) or student ($25 annual fee) that you
know, call the MSBA Membership Department at (410) 685-7878. Associate
membership and Section membership applications can also be processed
online at www.msba.org.
