  • ABA Shares Insurance Resources for Graduating Law Students

    The Law Student Division worked with ABA Insurance to come up with these resources for graduating law students.

    As the pandemic continues to have disruptive effects on students, we’ve heard from many law school administrators and students who are wondering whether the ABA has health insurance resources for graduating law students.

    The need for an insurance solution is especially important this year because more students than normal seem unsure of quickly obtaining employer-provided insurance due to the uncertainty surrounding the bar exam and the legal job market.

    The Law Student Division worked with ABA Insurance to come up with these resources:

    • ABA Insurance created a new landing page on abainsurance.com specifically tailored to law student insurance needs.
    • The page includes an FAQ of the most asked student health insurance questions and, probably most importantly, a phone number (1-855-967-0415) they can call to talk to an expert about their insurance needs.
    • The Law Student Division and ABA Insurance presented a free webinar intended to help students navigate the complexities of health insurance coverage.
    • The Law Student Division aggregated much of this information and published it, along with the webinar video, in a Before the Bar article.
