Law school should be an engaging and rewarding experience in and out of the classroom. That’s why the Student Bar Association (SBA) at Delaware Law offers a wide variety of extracurricular and public service activities. From the Environmental Law Society to the Women’s Law Caucus, our student organizations and activities will engage your mind and your talents. Interested in getting involved? Sign up to serve on the SBA board, Delaware Law’s student governing body.
The Delaware Law SBA emphasizes practical training to expand your educational experience beyond theory. The Alternative Dispute Resolution Society, American Association of Justice, and International Law Society give you the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom through legal competitions. Visiting legal professionals judge these contests and provide you with valuable feedback and constructive critiques.
The SBA supports a number of service initiatives that give you the opportunity to practice your legal skills and give back to the community. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program provides free income tax help. Through other student organizations, you can also participate in the Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, Adopt-a-Family, and The Jared Box Project.
The SBA believes that a strong understanding of diversity issues is an important asset in the professional world. Each spring, the SBA hosts Diversity Week, a series of lectures, debates, and panels that examine how race, culture, religion, and sexual orientation interact with the law.
