Student Bar Association

The objectives of the Student Bar Association of St. Thomas University School of Law are to ensure a student government based upon the will of the student body and to provide a forum for the expression of ideas concerning the social, ethical, and intellectual aspects of student life. The SBA shall also encourage the initiation of educational programs in order to achieve and maintain a high standard of education at the School of Law. Finally, the SBA provides for association among students, faculty, and administration, promotes a close affiliation between students and members of the legal profession and pursues the high standard of professionalism necessary to excel in the legal community. Each law student is automatically a member of the SBA and has an opportunity to participate in the activities and responsibilities of the organization.
