The Student Bar Association is comprised of every member of the law school student body and its officers serve as liaisons between law school students, administration, faculty, and staff. SBA is responsible for most student activities and plays an important role in law school governance. It conducts student representative elections and appoints student members of faculty/student committees, speaks for the student body, and organizes a majority of the school’s social events including tailgates, happy hours, softball tournaments, and Barrister’s Ball, the law school formal.
