For the second year in a row, a Stetson University College of Law student was elected 5th Circuit Governor of the American Bar Association Law Student Division. Tiffany Colbert was sworn in as the 2009-2010 circuit governor at the ABA Law Student Division at a ceremony on March 21 at the 2009 Spring Board of Governors Meeting held at the Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Colbert replaces Stetson law student Louis Brown, who completed his term of office this year. Brown graduates from Stetson Law on May 16. A Stetson Law student has held the governor position three times in the past five years.

Chris Sprowls, the first Stetson law student to chair the ABA Law Student Division and a former division delegate to the ABA House of Delegates, also graduates this May and presided over the board meeting on March 21.

“Stetson Law has a long tradition of leadership in the ABA Law Student Division, and we are excited that Tiffany will continue to represent Stetson both regionally and nationally,” said Michael Farley, Stetson’s assistant dean.

The Stetson ABA Law Student Division chapter was also recognized with the Bronze Key award for membership.

The 5th Circuit includes all law schools in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Puerto Rico and Tennessee. Colbert will represent the region at national ABA Law Student Division meetings.
