Student Activities and Organizations

All students automatically become members of the Student Bar Association (SBA), the school's overall student government organization, which acts as a liaison between the student body and the administration and faculty, representing students' interests in the Law Center community. In addition, the SBA conducts academic and social programs, allocates funds to student organizations, and collaborates with student bar associations at other law schools.

The SBA is headed by a student-elected executive board and representatives from each class in the full-time and part-time divisions. It plays an active role in governing the school and in establishing school policy, by selecting students to serve as full voting members on virtually all faculty committees. In addition, the SBA president participates in, and has a vote at, all faculty meetings.
