The American Psychology-Law Society (AP-LS) Student Committee works to advance the interests of student affiliates within the division, including by enhancing communication among student affiliates and between student affiliates and other members in the society, enhancing the participation of student affiliates in society affairs, and generally advancing the professional development of student affiliates.
Although many of our resources are reflected on this website, check out our dynamic unofficial website for up-to-date information on funding opportunities, job postings, webinars, and other student-focused programming. We are active on social media—please like our Facebook page or connect with us on Twitter @APLSsc for access to the most recent information from the Student Committee. Email us with direct questions.
Students interested in getting involved with the Student Committee should first become student affiliates of AP-LS. In addition, they should consider joining Div. 41's parent association, the American Psychological Association (APA), as a student affiliate. Graduate students who join APA are also automatically members of the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS). The yearly dues to each are offset by the numerous benefits afforded exclusively to student members.
Undergraduate, graduate, or professional students (who are AP-LS student affiliates) may apply to serve as AP-LS Student Committee Campus Representatives. In addition, and as per our bylaws, elections for Student Committee officer positions are held each year in the summer.
