Brief Announcement

Fellow UW Law Students,

Congratulations on completing the first quarter of the 2021-2022 academic year. We hope you are able to use this Winter Break to relax, unwind, and decompress so that you can come back to classes for Winter Quarter. As we progress towards the Winter Quarter, we want to get student feedback about the climate at UW Law. Included below is a link to the Autumn 2021 Climate Survey, which should take 10-15 minutes to complete. The more student input we receive, the more data and information we will have when we advocate on your behalf for changes and improvements. A summation of the results will be shared with the UW School of Law Leadership to identify what the School is doing well in supporting students, and areas that students want and need more support.x, unwind, and decompress so that you can come back to classes for Winter Quarter. You can take the survey here.

TGITs will continue in the Winter. If your RSO is interested in hosting a TGIT, please sign up here.

And be sure to fill out the Event Registration Form here. You do not need to fill it out for a TGIT, but for any other event that your RSO is interested in hosting

About Us

What is the Student Bar Association?

We are the governing body for law students and registered student organizations. We bridge the gap between the legal community, the administration, faculty, and students. To create the best environment for the school we rely upon the students to inform us of the changes they need and want.

Please join us at SBA meetings on Thursdays from 12:30-1:20pm in Room 119.

Questions? Email us at or use the forms provided under the "Report a Problem" and "Contact Us" tabs.

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the governing body for all University of Washington law students and student organizations. The purpose of the SBA is to:

  1. Promote useful student activities among the students of the University of Washington School of Law

  2. Foster a professional outlook on the part of such students

  3. Promote and to bring about contact and cooperation between the members of the Association and the members of the Bar and community at large

  4. Maintain a close relationship between the members of the Association and the members of the Law School faculty, staff, and Administration

  5. Carry on and promote such activities as shall be to the best interests of its members and of the school.

The SBA carries out these goals through organizing, funding, legislating, and advocating.
