2L elected to national ABA student post
Stephanie McCoy Loquvam, a second-year student at the College of Law, was elected Vice Chair of the American Bar Association Law Student Division, at its March 21 meeting. The national Vice Chair is a member of the governing board of the 47,500-member Law Student Division for the 2010 - 2011 term, and is responsible for ABA membership.
"I will be working with students at all 199 ABA-approved law schools to develop programming and promote opportunities afforded by the ABA," Loquvam said. "I am honored to serve as a voice for law students and will endeavor to promote the interests of law students to the ABA and members of the legal profession. I hope to take some of the initiatives and 'lessons learned' through my ABA experiences here at ASU to help make an impact nationally."
Loquvam also received the Silver Key, one of the highest awards presented by the ABA Law Student Division, and the highest award given to a student in the Division's 15th Circuit, during a meeting in February in Tempe. The 15th Circuit includes all law schools in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The Silver Key recognizes her efforts to assure law students opportunities to become involved with and participate in the mission and activities in the association, strengthen law student participation in the programs and activities of the division, and encourage the educational and professional development of law students.
Loquvam has masters degrees in Forensic Psychology and Business Administration from Tiffin University, and was a paralegal before coming to law school. She is an associate editor for Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science, and Technology, Vice President of the Consumer Advocacy Protection Program, a Director with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, and a teaching assistant. Loquvam also is an adjunct faculty member in the Maricopa Community College District and Northern Arizona University, where she teaches in the areas of public administration, criminal justice and forensic psychology.
