SBA's Annual Bull Roast

August 22, 2014, 6:00 pm

Sutherland Courtyard

Bull Roast is the annual "welcome back" BBQ hosted by the Student Bar Association at the University of Georgia School of Law. In addition to a BBQ buffet, attendees will also enjoy live music and complimentary refreshments. Bull Roast has long been a tradition at Georgia Law to give students the opportunity to reunite after the summer break and meet incoming, first-year students. Faculty, friends, spouses, and significant others are all invited to attend 

BBQ Buffet includes: pulled pork, chicken, slaw, baked beans, bread, and choice of tea or water. 



Mentor Program Mixer

August 28, 2014, 7:00 pm

Transmetropolitan Upstairs

The Mentor Mixer is a yearly event sponsored by SBA that kicks off the Mentor Program. Mentors from the 2L and 3L class are assigned mentees from the incoming 1L class, transfer students, and LLM students. The mixer allows Mentors and Mentees a chance to socialize and get to know one another before the semester begins in earnest.  This is an event that is always well attended that you will not want to miss.

SBA will be serving complimentary pizza to all attendees. Vegetarian options will be available; however, the event is first-come, first-serve. For more information on the mixer, contact Jack Gibson, SBA's Mentor Program Director, at
