About Us
 

"We the students of Whittier Law School, in order to empower the Student Body by representing their interests to the Faculty and Administration, provide for the development of legal traditions among the students, and provide for or support efforts to promote the social and educational interests of the entire student body."  --Preamble to the S.B.A. Constitution

Welcome!  All registered Whittier Law School students are members of the Student Bar Association. The SBA organizes activities of general law student interest and helps new students adjust to life at Whittier by sponsoring social, athletic, and law-related events. Our primary purpose is to act as an intermediary between our fellow students and the administration.

The Whittier Law School Student Bar Association is the umbrella organization for all student organizations at Whittier Law School. The SBA budget is amassed by an SBA fee assessed to all students as part of tuition.  The SBA allocates funds to each of the active student groups at Whittier Law School who request such funds and publishes the Zealous Advocate, the student newspaper.

The SBA welcomes your participation and feedback.  Tell us how we can best serve you. Please feel free to contact any of the SBA officers below with your comments and concerns. For general concerns, please email whittier.sbapresident@gmail.com.

The SBA thanks the Class of 2008 and the Whittier Law School Alumni Association for helping to make this website a reality.
