Student Organizations

UConn Law students come to law school with varied interests, backgrounds and view points. Political, religious, affinity, professional, service, practice area, academic, athletic and social organizations reflect the diversity of our student body. Our student groups are active on campus, hosting events aimed at providing information and practical skills for our students, and off-campus in a variety of community service workshops and projects. Students are encouraged to attend any event that might pique their interest or try their luck on the court or field. If there is not a student group that represents your interests you are welcomed and encouraged to create your own organization. For a list of student organizations please visit the student organization list.

Founded in 1959, the Student Bar Association (SBA) is the student government of the University of Connecticut School of Law.  Membership consists of students elected annually by the Day, Evening, and L.L.M. Divisions of the Law School.  The SBA manages a budget derived from student activities fees to support various student organizations, fund community activities, and to promote the quality of student life.  In addition, the SBA selects students to serve on faculty committees, provides feedback to the administration, and is active in a multitude of issues affecting students at the Law School.
