Mandatory University RSO Meeting – September 20

Each year, the University hosts a mandatory RSO meeting for Recognized Student Organizations.  We recommend that law school student organizations apply for RSO status and maintain good standing.  RSOs are eligible to request special project funds from the University.  In addition, the Student Bar Association has funds available for student law groups that are RSOs. 

This year, the RSO Summit will be held on Friday, September 20, in the SAC Multipurpose Room.  Registration will open at 4pm and the meeting will start 4:30 and run until 7:30pm.  Free food will be provided by Flavour’s Catering. Groups should pre-register for the Summit at:  If you have questions about your RSO status with the University, please contact Victoria Spencer, Graduate Assistant to Recognized Student Organizations, at 852-0319 or
