Although you do not need to identify yourself as having a disability to be part of the executive, you must be sensitive to the experiences of students with disabilities in law school and be passionate about disability rights.

Second Year Representative, Third Year Representative, Communication chair and blogger, and First year Representative will happen next September after the DLA first general meeting.

Why participate on the executive of the DLA?

 The three most important reasons: to work with a group of students who are passionate about disability rights, to be able to shape the development of a student association at FTX, and the opportunity to meet some interesting lawyers, business professionals, and government personnel who are part of the growing DLA network.
