For all students continuing coverage, if you do not re-enroll in the plan prior to the end date of your coverage, your insurance will be cancelled at the end of period for which premium has been paid. To ensure there is not a lapse in coverage, PLEASE mark your calendars and make certain you submit your premium on a timely basis and pay as required.
Graduating law students who are not currently carrying this health insurance coverage with the ABA Law Student Division UHCSR plan may still qualify for the graduate extension by enrolling and purchasing the last quarter of the 2009-2010 health plan no later than May 22, 2010.
Enrollment in the health plan by May 22, 2010 is an ABSOLUTE requirement of the carrier for graduating students seeking the extension coverage. Additionally, this program is offered to ABA Law Student Division members only. If you are not currently enrolled in the ABA – you may join by calling 800.285.2221 or visiting http://www.abanet.org/join/. Students may view the health plan benefits at https://www.uhcsr.com/ABA.
Although it is usually an eligibility requirement for initial enrollment, UHCSR worked with the ABA Law Student Division and agreed to waive the 31-day class attendance requirement through May 22, 2010 for graduating students enrolling in this plan. UHCSR sent notification to all its customer service representatives advising them of this exception for the ABA Law Student Division plan. Students who are currently insured under this plan can continue coverage up to one year provided there is no break (lapse) in coverage.
Please note that after August 1, 2010, the new 2010-2011 plan rates will apply. Each student has a choice of one of the benefits plans. Plan I has higher benefits than Plan II. Make your selection carefully; you cannot upgrade coverage after the initial purchase of the Plan for the policy year.
If you are currently insured under another UHCSR school endorsed plan, you cannot receive a refund on your school UHCSR plan if you choose to purchase additional, overlapping coverage under the ABA Law Student Division plan.
Since benefits may be different than your current plan, you may view the health plan benefits and enroll online at https://www.uhcsr.com/ABA. Please contact UHCSR directly at 800.505.5450 for specific information on the plans.

The Franklin Williams Internship, named after the late Ambassador Franklin H. Williams, was established for undergraduate and graduate students who have a serious interest in international relations.
Ambassador Williams had a long career of public service, including sering as the American Ambassador to Ghana, as well as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Lincoln University, one of the country’s historically black colleges. He was also a Director of the Council on Foreign Relations, where he made special efforts to encourage the nomination of black Americans to membership.
The Council will select one individual each term (fall, spring, and summer) to work in the Council’s New York City headquarters. The intern will work closely with a Program Director or Fellow in either the Studies or the Meetings Program and will be involved with program coordination, substantive and business writing, research, and budget management. The selected intern will be required to make a commitment of at least 12 hours per week, and will be paid $10 an hour.
To apply for this internship, please send a resume and cover letter including the semester, days, and times available to work to the Internship Coordinator in the Human Resources Office at the address listed below. The Council is an equal opportunity employer.
