Sohaski ’15 elected ABA Law Student Division Sixth Circuit Governor
March 26, 2013
Aaron P. Sohaski ’15 was recently elected the 2013-2014 Sixth Circuit Governor for the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division.
In this position, Sohaski will represent and advocate for law students in the Division’s Sixth Circuit, which encompasses all law schools in Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky. With Law Student Division officers and other American Bar Association (ABA) leaders, he will work to develop and promote ABA programs, services, and initiatives.
Sohaski is grateful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity and has plans to improve communication between the circuit’s law schools by developing and improving the circuit’s web site, monthly newsletters, and social media strategies. “I look forward to strengthening ties between the schools and will look for new chances to build bonds between the Student Bar Associations and the American Bar Associations at each law school,” he said.
Sohaski’s application was supported by College of Law Dean Daniel J. Steinbock. “We are proud that one of our students will represent all of the law students in our region,” said Dean Steinbock. “Aaron’s service to his fellow students and community is one example among many of the service commitment among Toledo Law students.”
Sohaski’s one-year term began at the conclusion of the Law Student Division Spring Board of Governors Meeting and Governor Training, March 14-17, 2013, in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Before beginning law school, Sohaski spent two years teaching elementary school children in Baltimore, Maryland with the Teach for America Corps. He received his bachelor’s degree from Grand Valley State University and a master of science in urban education from John Hopkins University.
