Getting Involved

Pursue Your Passion

Our student organizations are an important part of the Law School community and the engine behind many exciting programs. They offer an opportunity for students to explore their academic work beyond the classroom, through events that bring them together with others of similar (or different) cultural backgrounds or philosophical beliefs. These student organizations are also an effective way for you to participate in activities that will broaden your knowledge of specific areas of the law, become involved in pro bono work, and connect with the Law School's alumni and other members of the legal community.

There are more than 40 student organizations within the Law School, representing a variety of practice areas and cultural groups. Members develop substantive and informative student programs throughout the school year, as well as organize school-wide social events. Early in the academic year, the Student Bar Association conducts its annual Organization Fair when representatives from the association's various organizations are available to meet with students interested in joining.
