Mission:The Student Bar Association ("SBA") is the student government at UCLA School of Law. We seek to address and represent student concerns and enhance professional and social interests. SBA provides funding for student organizations, projects, and events and works closely with the administration to advise the Dean and Dean of Students on student sentiment. Externally, we represent the law school in the UCLA Graduate Students Association ("GSA") and collaborate with local bar associations and other California law schools. SBA is committed to promoting a campus climate that is safe, open, and inviting for a diverse student body. We provide many services, including:

  • Weekly social activities
  • Representation of student concerns and complaints to the faculty and administration
  • Funding for student organizations, projects, and events
  • Town Hall Forums to discuss issues of interest to the law school community

The SBA Council consists of 27 members, most of whom are elected at the end of the spring semester to a one-year term beginning the following summer and continuing into the academic year. Elections for 1L, LLM, and Transfer student positions, in addition to any vacant positions from the spring elections, typically occur within the first month of the fall semester. The Council includes a five-person executive board (President, Vice President, External Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer), three school-wide positions (Communications Chair, Parliamentarian, and Diversity Officer), four class presidents (1L, 2L, 3L, and LLM), and 15 class-specific representatives (four for each JD class, two LLM representatives, and one Transfer student representative). Each council member must serve on two of our committees listed below.
