The Brandeis School of Law offers a rich life outside the classroom. You may choose to join one or more of the approximately 20 diverse and active student organizations supported by the Student Bar Association. The groups focus on specific legal practice areas, political activities, volunteer and pro bono opportunities, affinity networking, and athletic activities. Throughout the year, the various groups sponsor programs at the Law School ranging from scholarly discussions and lectures to brownbag lunches and social and recreational events for the law school community. The complete list of organizations and officers for the 2013-14 academic year is available here.
The Club Programming Committee is a joint initiative designed and developed by the Student Government Association and the Dean of Students Office. Support for the managing of the program is provided by Student Involvement. SGA and other departments (Dean of Students Office, Provost, Undergraduate Affairs and Housing and Residence Life) have combined to make significant funding available for student organizations to request.
These funds are intended to afford Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) the opportunity to contribute to the quality of campus life by sponsoring events that may not be possible without this financial assistance. Requests should demonstrate how funding an initiative would inspire a vibrant campus life and an engaged student body. Every request received will be reviewed by the CPC on a case-by-case basis. CPC is composed primarily of students who will decide what requests best support student life and therefore should receive funding.
To maintain ongoing recognition, all UofL Law student organizations must have the following information on file with the Student Life Office at the start of the fall semester. It is the responsibility of each organization to update the information on this form as necessary. Please complete this form and submit it at the start of the fall semester.
