Law school should be a fulfilling and rewarding experience both inside and outside of the classroom. The Student Bar Association (SBA) at Delaware Law School is proud to support a variety of extracurricular activities and student-led organizations on our campus to ensure that each and every law student is able to explore their unique passions. From the Women’s Law Caucus to the Food and Drug Law Association, SBA facilitates student engagement to serve not just Delaware Law School, but the Delaware community at large.
The Student Bar Association encourages student engagement on campus by allowing student-led organizations to independently develop their own extra-curricular activities, educational panels or forums, and service events. Any group of regular and/or extended division students that meet the requisite minimum standards may qualify to become an official student organization. Additionally, SBA organizations often offer learning opportunities not available in the traditional classroom setting such as seminars on dressing professionally and wellness in law. SBA also partners with the Career Development Office and the Alumni Association to provide programming related to professional development beyond law school.
For more information on how to form an organization or affinity group on campus, please contact the Vice President of Academics and Community Service.
The Student Bar Association requires its student organizations to arrange community service events throughout the year, encouraging students to develop relationships with communities around the law school. Often, students will hold food and clothing drives around the holidays and donate the proceeds to local shelters and affinity groups. Further, SBA acknowledges that there are critical needs among our own law school community and provides a variety of mental health, financial management, and other student-specific resources for students to utilize as needed.
The Student Bar Association has partnered with the Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to ensure that every regular and extended division student feels they have an equal voice within our law school community. SBA believes that it is through sharing our unique experiences, we expand our abilities to respect, support, and celebrate our future colleagues in law. SBA has made a commitment to embrace the differences in culture, religion, race, and sexual orientation among our students and faculty as assets that are critical to our development as legal professionals.
For more information about the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives at Delaware Law School, please contact Dean Joseph Farris.
