Student Bar Association

The University of Dayton School of Law’s Student Bar Association is the sole representative voice of the law school student body. The SBA is the student government at UDSL and serves as a conduit to help facilitate the expression and representation of the student body. SBA board members serve as representatives of the student body to the faculty and administration of the law school. The SBA consists of an executive board, officers from each class and two ABA representatives. The ABA representatives advance the goals of UDSL through their participation with the American Bar Association Law Student Division. All board members are elected annually and serve one term, with the exception of the ABA representatives who serve two-year staggered terms.

Every law student at UDSL is a member of the SBA and has a voice. The SBA allocates funds to each student organization group according to member participation. Student groups are encouraged to coordinate academic, cultural, philosophical and social events and may receive additional funding from the SBA upon request and a board member vote. The SBA also promotes numerous social functions in addition to cosponsoring various educationally enriching programs within the school and community. The SBA meets bimonthly or upon request and meetings are open to all law students.

The SBA plays a significant role in organizing the following events: Dean’s Classic Softball Tournament, Kessler Golf Tournament, Halloween party, Thanksgiving dinner, 2L halfway party, Diversity Fest, Barrister’s Ball and graduation.
