What is SBA? How does it work and what do officers and representatives do?

SBA is a student-governed organization that acts carries out several roles on the Lewis & Clark Law School campus. We make sure that the opinions and concerns of the L&C student body are heard by the faculty and staff by acting as a liaison via our many committees and board representatives. We keep up on current events happening around campus, and give the students information they need on changes and events in our community. We also organize awesome events to help students socialize and relax.
