The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the governing organization for the law school student body. As a law student, you are automatically a member of the SBA and entitled to all benefits of SBA membership. The SBA provides funding, governance, and logistics support to the school’s many student organizations.


The SBA consists of three branches:

Judicial Board

  • The Judicial Board oversees all elections as well as interprets the SBA and student organization by-laws or constitutions. The board consists of appointed students whose terms last for as long as he or she is an enrolled student.
