Interested in representing the Law School as part of one of the University-wide institutions? These institutions – the Honor Committee, the University Judiciary Committee, and the Student Council – make rules and take actions that affect all students at the University, including us here at the Law School. The Law School elects two representatives to each institution.
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. If you are interested in running for a position, 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.
If you are running for a position, you must attend a candidate information session or review the materials yourself and complete an online quiz by Wednesday, January 27. You must then collect the applicable number of signatures for your position and turn them in by Friday, February 12, at which point campaigning may begin. The quiz will be available in mid-January. Voting will begin on Friday, February 19 and run through Thursday, February 25.
To aid students both in preparing to run for positions and in understanding what specific positions entail, the Student Bar Association will be hosting a Question and Answer session on Monday, January 25. You will be receiving emails with more details about the election process from UBE and SBA in January, but please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us before then with questions you may have.
