  The School of Law - Newark 2004-2006 Student Activities Organizations Student Bar Association (SBA)  

Student Bar Association (SBA)

The Student Bar Association is the umbrella organization for all other organizations in the law school. Extracurricular affairs of the school are governed by the SBA, which consists of elected representatives from each class, chosen on a proportional basis; these representatives elect officers to govern the association. The SBA is governed by a constitution and bylaws. It is responsible for the allocation of funds received from student activity fees to the various student organizations. Other activities planned by the organization include student-faculty coffee hours, parties, and speakers. The SBA also facilitates the discussion of current issues affecting the law school community and provides a forum for subsequent action and resolution.

The SBA is the representative body of law school students. It acts as a vehicle for the expression of student concerns and for the promotion of student participation in the affairs of the law school, the Rutgers University system, the legal community, and the community in general. A major functionof the SBA is appointment of student members to most of the faculty standing committees. These appointments are open to all members of the student body. They provide an opportunity for students to work face-to-face with faculty in developing and directing school policy, programs, and functions. Appointments to these committees are made by the SBA Executive Committee with the advice and consent of the SBA membership.
