The Student Bar Association at the University of Virginia School of Law has a new president, Steven Glendon ’18. Glendon’s yearlong term for the student government association began this month.

Hometown: Elizabeth City, North Carolina

Prior education: I have a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Wake Forest University; I minored in Japanese.

Prior work experience: I was a litigation paralegal for two years at McGuireWoods in Richmond, Virginia, focusing on products liability cases.

Other organizations and positions held: I was production editor for the Virginia Law & Business Review, am outgoing vice president of programming for the Virginia Law & Business Society, am representative to the Pan-Grad Council (this position is part of my role as SBA president) and I volunteer for the Volunteer Income Tax Association.

Future career plans: I plan on practicing corporate law in New York City; I will be working at White & Case there this summer.

Favorite law school class: This is a really difficult question. My favorite subject is anything related to corporate law. I don’t think I can pick a favorite class; I have had a lot of excellent law school professors and have loved all of the classes I have taken. I really enjoyed Federal Income Tax last semester, and my Property, Contracts and Civil Procedure classes 1L year. This semester I am taking a bunch of corporate classes that I love as well.

What am I looking forward to as SBA president: I am looking forward to getting to know the administration better and advocating for my peers’ interests.

Top goals as SBA president: I would really love to increase school-wide interaction with the SBA. A lot of the student body doesn't know or care what the SBA does and I think we honestly serve a very important purpose. The president holds office hours once a week in the SBA office, and I would really love to start a program where once a month I provide coffee and doughnuts during these office hours to encourage students to visit and get to know me and the SBA better.
