Want to make the law school a better place?  The SBA wants you.  There are multiple ways to get involved in the SBA – running for an elected position on the SBA Governing Board, applying to be appointed to an SBA Committee Chair position, or joining a Committee.

Note: for information on running for a University-wide position, please click here.


Join the SBA Governing Board by running for an elected position

As in years past, the SBA will hold elections in conjunction with the University wide spring elections. Both will be administered by the University Board of Elections (UBE). A full list of the elected positions and the names of the students currently holding those positions are available here. Elections for Honor Committee, UJC, ABA, 3L, and 2L officers occur during February of Spring Semester. If you are interested in a position, please reach out to SBA Vice President Laura Gregory at lhg3bw@virginia.edu directly for additional information. Several important dates occur within the first weeks of the semester. A copy of the UBE Calendar and several other informational documents are available at this link.

Please note that 1L, Transfer, and LLM Senators are selected in September. 1Ls are internally elected by the First Year Council, which is made up of two elected representatives from each section. Transfer and LLM Senators are also internally elected by those respective groups.

Please see the SBA Constitution and Bylaws for more information.


Become an SBA Committee Chair

Once the elected positions are filled, the process of appointing Committee chairs begins.  The appointment process begins in late March or early April.  Please watch for information about this process via email. In the meantime, check out our Committees page to take a closer look at what opportunities will be available.

Committees will seek members in the fall. Please watch for information about committee membership via email as well.

Committees will be seeking members for the 2017-2018 academic year in the fall. Please check out our Committees (link) page to learn more about available opportunities and fill out our interest form when it becomes available in the fall.
