Student organizations enrich the law school experience – helping you develop new interests and expand your circle of friends.
Students at Western State are given the opportunity to enhance their law school experience through membership in the multiple student organizations on campus. Student organizations are based upon students’ legal practice interests and their ethnic, religious, political or sexual identities. All current students are members of the Student Bar Association (SBA) and are eligible for membership in any of the current student organizations on campus. Extracurricular activities are a great way to connect with other students and enhance your educational experience. Student organizations provide an avenue for service and professional development as well as a welcome break from the stress of academic life. On-campus groups can help foster a strong sense of community and cooperation among students.
Student Bar Association (SBA)
The Western State Student Bar Association (SBA) is the official representative body of the students. The SBA acts as the umbrella organization for all student organizations and serves as the student voice to the faculty and administration.
