Dr. Michelle Bodden-White '22 will serve as a member-at-large on the Council of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.
“I'm honored to join the Council so that I can use my voice to influence policies that impact law students and law schools,” Bodden-White said. “With the incredible support I've received from everyone at ALS, I feel confident about taking on this position while continuing to advance in my legal education.”
As a Council member, she will join state and federal judges, law school deans, law firm partners, and other luminaries in the important work the Council does as the national accrediting body for American legal education. Overall, the section strives to improve legal education and lawyer licensing by fostering cooperation among legal educators, practitioners and judges through workshops, conferences and publications, according to Americanbar.org.
“This appointment is a tremendous achievement for and recognition of Dr. Bodden-White, a student who has contributed significantly to the Albany Law School community as a member of the Moot Court Board, the Institutional Diversity Committee, the Student Diversity Committee, BLSA, and more,” said President and Dean Alicia Ouellette. “I have no doubt that she will make Albany Law proud as she fulfils her role on the Council."
Before coming to Albany Law School Bodden-White worked extensively in education in New York City and authored children's books focused on character development from an African base.
