Student Groups

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the student government at St. John's School of Law. It functions as the medium for the expression and advocacy of students' views and the protection of their interests, and acts as liaison between the student body, the Law School's faculty and the administration.

The Executive Board of the SBA consists of a President, Academic Vice President, Vice President for Students, Treasurer, Secretary, Associate Vice President for Evening Students, and Director of Diversity and Inclusion. Each officer is elected in a general student election to serve a one-year term. The governing body of the SBA is the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives is made up of delegates from each section of the first, second, third, and fourth-year classes. They are elected by their respective classmates to serve one-year terms.

All matriculated law students are automatically members of the SBA and eligible to serve on the SBA Committees. These Committees, which are either provided for in the SBA Constitution or established by the Executive Board, deal with numerous aspects of, and bear responsibility for, the general operation of student affairs. Their obligations include representing student concerns to the faculty and the administration, sponsoring a variety of educational, social, and cultural events, and serving as the central administration for the SBA funded student organizations and national legal fraternities.
