Requests failing to meet the deadline will be denied.
Starting a New Student Organization
Students seeking official recognition from the officers of the Association shall first organize as a Provisional Student Organization.
To form a Provisional Student Organization, a group of students shall submit a Proposal for Provisional Charter Status to the SBA Executive Vice President stating the following:
- The group has at least eight or more members
- Membership in the group is open to all members of the Association
- The named leader of the group
- A declaration promoting how the group contributes to the Law Center or community at large
- A declaration stating the group shall abide by any decisions of the Ethics Committee and any legislation, policy, or rule adopted by the officers of the Association and/or the Council of Student Organizations
- A statement of the groups purpose, goal, and needs
The SBA Executive Vice President shall submit the group’s proposal for Provisional Charter Status to the officers of the Association for approval. Upon a simple majority vote of the officers of the Association, the group of students shall be given a Provisional Charter.
After one year of maintaining the Provisional Charter, the officers of the Provisional Student Organization may submit a request to ANY officer of the Association to become an official Student Organization.
