Student Bar Association

All registered law students are members of the Student Bar Association. Through the SBA, students have an active, powerful voice in shaping the law school's curricular and co-curricular life. Students serve on some faculty committees: Admissions, Buildings and Grounds, Career Services, Curriculum, and Library and Information Systems and on the SBA's Budget Committee, Social Committee and Election Commission. The Honor Court includes students and faculty in equal numbers. Representatives from each class serve on the SBA Senate; the Executive Board consists of the SBA's president, vice president, executive secretary, treasurer, and senate counsel. These groups allocate money among student organizations, coordinate the workings of all committees, address issues confronting the law school community and advocate the students' best interests to the administration and faculty. Committee members are appointed and Senate representatives and Executive Board members are elected. All students are encouraged to serve on committees and take an active part in SBA activities. The SBA is a charter member of the American Law School Association, an affiliate of the American Bar Association. Through the SBA, students represent CWRU within the American, Ohio and Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Associations.
