Your Voice


The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the student government body at the University of Georgia School of Law. The SBA Board is comprised of the Executive Board elected members and appointed student members. The SBA Board works diligently during the year to ensure quality events and programs, to voice student concerns, and to promote community at Georgia Law.

The SBA Executive Board is comprised of 12 elected positions: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, 3L President, 3L Vice President, 2L President, 2L Vice President, 1L President, and the three 1L section vice presidents. The general election for officers is held every April before the end of classes. However, 1L class officers are not elected until the fall semester after classes begin.

1L Elections for the Class of 2016 will be held on Friday, August 30.  Please see the elections calendar below for details.

SBA also consists of numerous appointed positions. These positions oversee different aspects of student life to bring student concerns to the Administration's attention.

Please feel free to contact any SBA Board member with any concerns, questions, or suggestions you may have.
