Second-year law student Chloé Woods was recently appointed to the American Bar Association Board of Governors.

Far from being a stranger to the mantle of leadership, Woods was honored earlier this year by Missouri Lawyers Weekly with their 2014 Women’s Justice Award in the category of Leader of Tomorrow. In addition to her service on the ABA Board of Governors, Woods also currently is the director of public relations for the National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA). There she works to develop and implement all public relations of NBLSA through media relations, public communications for members of the organization, and social media and other media outlets.

In the past, she has worked as the public relations and community outreach coordinator for the St. Louis Rams, on the staff for the Mayor’s office in Baltimore, and on the Obama for America National Advance press liaison team during the presidential debates. At the law school, she and her partner won the 2012–13 First-Year Negotiation Competition. Woods is the lieutenant governor for diversity of the 8th Circuit of the ABA, vice president of community service for the Graduate Professional Council, and a member of the law school's Public Service Advisory Board.
