Organizations for Every Interest

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law is home to more than two dozen student-run and developed organizations, which provide opportunities to share experiences with other students of various backgrounds, develop leadership skills, and strongly enhance the academic and social aspects of your law school education. Many organizations also offer important networking opportunities with members of the bar and the bench, as well as with faculty and alumni.

Student Organizations 

Overseeing the activities and development of all student organizations is the Student Bar Association (SBA), a student-run organization to which all students belong. Designed to improve all aspects of student life, the SBA coordinates the Law School’s social, curricular, and athletic activities and represents student concerns to the faculty and administration. SBA delegates serve on faculty committees, work as liaisons to the Alumni Association Board and Board of Visitors, and are members of the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association.
