Widener Law is pleased to announce that Harrisburg-campus student Paul Edger, a second-year law student, was recently elected to a leadership position within the American Bar Association Law Student Division.
Edger was sworn in March 20 as governor of the division’s 3rd circuit, which includes all the law schools in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
In this role, Edger will represent the interests of more than 5,000 law students as a voting member of the division’s national Board of Governors, which convenes several times a year. The board has primary responsibility over the law student division’s operations, programs and finances. Edger was elected by student leaders from the 14 law schools he represents.
He will serve through March 2011, two months before his expected graduation.
“I congratulate Paul and wish him the best as he makes the most of this terrific leadership opportunity. The law students of the 3rd circuit are in good hands,” Law Dean Linda L. Ammons
said. “At Widener we stress the importance of leadership and service, and Paul is a great example of that tradition.”
