Throughout the year, the Student Bar Association (SBA) and other student organizations sponsor a variety of practical, social and educational events.
To receive approval as a student organization, the organization must have a written Constitution and Bylaws which ensure full compliance with the university's non-discrimination policy and to ensure procedures, such as election of officers, are done in accordance with the SBA Constitution and Bylaws (for example, that officers are democratically elected by the members).
Membership in all approved student organizations is available to all students without regard to gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Some organizations (example: Phi Alpha Delta, the law fraternity) have national affiliations which require payment of dues, but payment of dues to the national organization is not required to be a member of the student organization.
The SBA provides much of the funding for student organizations, though many of the more active groups engage in separate fundraising to finance their functions and activities. If you have any questions about one of the approved student organizations, contact the group's president. If there is a hyperlink below, it will take you to the organization's Web site. If the organization has a national Web site, it is also indicated with a link.
Finally, the American Bar Association offers student membership to all students at Seton Hall University School of Law because it is an ABA-accredited law school. Please visit the ABA Website to obtain information on student membership in the ABA and its various sections, divisions and departments.
