Howard University

SBA & Class Organization Officers


The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the governing body of the law students at Howard University School of Law. The SBA acts as the primary liaison between the law students and the School administration. Through its activities, the SBA endeavors to further legal education, promote fellowship and goodwill among students, faculty and the administration, and advocate the concerns of the law students. In addition, the SBA coordinates student activities and organizations, and is charged with appropriating funds for these student activities and student organizations.

The SBA seeks to represent all of the students of the Howard University School of Law in order to enhance our moral, political, and intellectual development; to further the ethical ideals of the profession during our law school training; and to increase our knowledge and understanding of the substance and procedure of the law.

The 2015-2016 school year will focus on implementing the Know The Facts initiative:

FLEXIBILITY: Reform the course schedule to be conducive to externships and off-campus job opportunities.

ALUMNI: Develop a school-wide alumni-mentoring program to connect HUSL students with alumni mentors working in fields related to student interests.

COMMUNICATION: Increase communication between faculty and students regarding access to grades, financial aid, facilities and maintenance, etc.

TRANSPARENCY: Increase transparency between students and faculty regarding the state of the campus, processes and major decisions.

SCARCITY: Creating a culture that ends the belief that there are only a few jobs for the Top 10%. Ensure that all students have the career options they desire. Also, increase the number of bar courses and elective classes offered at HUSL.
