“I went to law school because I wanted to help people” ~ Linda Klein

The ABA Annual Meeting marks both the end and beginning of leadership as the organization marches into the future. This time On The Road, hosts Lynae Tucker and Chris Morgan, the student editor and the 12th Circuit Governor for the ABA Law Student Division sit down with incoming ABA President Linda Klein, who is the 140th person to head the American Bar Association, at the 2016 ABA Annual Meeting.

They discuss Linda’s early pro bono work for the elderly and her upcoming programs designed help our nation’s veterans. In addition, Linda tells us about her decades long involvement with the American Bar Association and how forging early relationships helped guide her career. She encourages lawyers to volunteer and citizens to vote. In addition, she believes that lawyers need to play a part to ensure the next generation receives a good primary education.
