About the SBA
The Student Bar Association (SBA) dates back to 1959, and since its inception, has served as the student government of the University of Connecticut School of Law. Every enrolled student is a member of the Student Bar Association. The governing body of the SBA consists of a group of elected officers and representatives referred to in our Constitution as the Board. In total, three Officers (President, Vice-President and Chief Administrative Officer), six Cabinet Members (the three Officers plus the Chief Financial Officer, Parliamentarian and ABA Representative) and nineteen Representatives serve on the Board.
The SBA also acts as an umbrella organization for approximately forty Student Organizations representing a wide variety of interests and associations. As a governing body and umbrella organization, the SBA provides funding, guidance, and from time to time, regulations to assist Student Organizations in fulfilling their purposes and contributing to the Law School community.
The mission of the SBA is set forth in the Preamble of its Constitution, which reads as follows:
We, the students of The University of Connecticut School of Law, do hereby establish the Student Bar Association and its governing Board, whose purposes shall include:
1. The promotion of such activities as may be of interest to the student body;
2. The promotion of cordial and effective relations among students, faculty and administration of the Law School, and with the University at large, other law schools and the community; and
3. The expression and representation of student opinion on matters pertaining to the law, to the Law School and to the Student Bar Association.
The oath of office for incoming SBA Board members is as follows:
I solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Connecticut, and the Constitution and the ByLaws of the Student Bar Association. I will faithfully discharge, according to law, the duties of the office of SBA Board member, to the best of my abilities.
