Student Bar Associations (SBA)

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the student government of the School of Law. It functions as the medium for the expression and advocacy of students’ views and the protection of their interests, and acts as liaison between the student body, the faculty, and the administration of the school. The Executive Board of the SBA consists of a President, Academic VP, VP for the Evening Students, VP for the Day Students, Treasurer, Secretary and Associate VP for the Evening Students. The governing body of the SBA is the House of Representatives. Each officer is elected in a general student election of the school to serve a one year term. The House of Representatives is made up of delegates from each section of the first, second, third, and fourth year classes. They are elected by their respective classmates to serve one year terms.

All matriculated students of the School of Law are automatically members of the SBA and eligible to serve on its Committees. These Committees, which are either provided for in the SBA Constitution or established by the Executive Board, deal with numerous aspects of and bear responsibility for the general operation of student affairs. Their obligations include representing student concerns to the faculty and the administration, sponsoring a variety of educational, social and cultural events, and serving as the central administration for the SBA funded student organizations and National Legal Fraternities.
