SBA functions as the governing body organization for many of the student organizations, academic journals, and moot courts. Directed by SUNY, University, and School of Law policies, SBA also allocates funding collected from student activity fees for various student events, including hosting a number of social and educational events to enhance the student experience.

There are over 30 different student groups at UB School of Law. The majority are under the umbrella of the Student Bar Association. View a full list of clubs, journals and moot courts.

SBA’s bimonthly meetings are listed on the events calendar and are open to everyone. In addition to SBA club business, these meetings can be considered an open forum for any student wishing to share a suggestion or concern.
