Hello, NBA Board of Governors, Sections, Divisions, and Members!


My name is Kevin L. Jones and it has been my distinct honor to serve as the National Bar Association Law Students Division (NBA LSD) Chair and a member of the Board of Governors for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 bar years. As members of the Class of 2020, I, along with several LSD board members know how disheartening and challenging it has been for many graduates to be unable to commemorate our law school graduations in the way we had envisioned. However, with your help and support, we have already shown how resilient we are and will continue to be as Class of 2020 graduates! 


As most of us study for the bar exam (assuming we know when and where we will be able to sit for the bar!), the 2019-20 NBA LSD Board hopes that you will take a few moments to celebrate our accomplishments with us! The NBA LSD and the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) will salute the Class of 2020 in a celebratory video during the National Bar Association's virtual 95th Annual Convention.  


Several members of the LSD Board, including myself, are graduating and hope to leave the incoming Board with enough financial support to provide quality programming for the 2020 - 2021 bar year. This critical goal aligns with NBA’s strategic plan to fortify our pipeline and support the future of our beloved organization. Unfortunately, as law students, it is difficult to engage in fundraising efforts and the pandemic has extinguished the few opportunities usually available. Nonetheless, we are so grateful for the continued support of NBA members and would not be successful without it. 


To accomplish our fundraising goal of $3000, we are accepting $25 donation-based congratulatory booster statements to be featured in our celebration video! Please note that we appreciate and welcome any amount greater than $25. To send a congratulatory note to be included in the video, you will need to use NBALSD2020- Donate. PLEASE send donation as a “friend” to avoid cost to LSD.


If the link does not work, simply open your PayPal account, select "Send" and enter  Please remit a suggested donation of at least $25 and submit your congratulatory note in the "Note" section of the submission NO LATER than July 6, 2020.  Your congratulatory note can be for the entire Class of 2020 or for an individual student that will be featured in the video! Please limit statements to a two-sentence maximum


Please note, the LSD Board reserves the right to edit your congratulatory message for length, clarity, grammatical or spelling errors.  If you have any questions about your submission, please email


We hope that you are able to virtually celebrate with us next month during the NBA's 95th Annual Convention!


Yours in LSD Service,


Kevin L. Jones, LSD Chair
