Sohaski recently was elected the 2013-14 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 leaders, he will work to develop and promote the association’s 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 website, 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 Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the UT College of Law.
“We are proud that one of our students will represent all of the law students in our region,” Steinbock said. “Aaron’s service to his fellow students and community is one example among many of the service commitment among UT 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, in New Orleans.
Before beginning law school, Sohaski spent two years teaching elementary school children in Baltimore 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 Johns Hopkins University.
