Announcements

Student Bar Association (SBA): 1L Section Representative Elections

Attention 1Ls: Every year, a 1L Section Representative is elected for each 1L section. This is a great way to get involved and become a part of our student government. Attend the Informational Session on Thursday, September 7 to find out more information. If you would like to run, you must turn in your Declaration of Candidacy form by September 10, 2017. Campaigning will take place on September 11-14. And the election will take place online beginning on Friday, September 15 and ending on Sunday, September 17. For more information, contact SBA Elections Chair Evan Flores.

Student Health Insurance Requirement

All law students are required to have health insurance while enrolled at USD. You may purchase an insurance policy through the school's provider, or you may waive participation in the University-sponsored plan if you have a policy that will provide you with sufficient coverage while you are at USD. All students must either enroll in or waive out of the student health insurance plan. Your student account will automatically be charged for the student health insurance plan unless you submit a waiver by the deadline (September 15, 2017). For detailed information about the student health insurance requirement and instructions on how to enroll in or waive the student health insurance plan, please visit the USD health insurance website. Students should submit any insurance related questions via the Gallagher Student Customer Service form. Please note that dependent coverage is not available for 2017-18 under the USD student health insurance plan.

Mandatory Title IX Training

The annual online training on sexual misconduct and relationship violence has been issued. All students at USD should have received an email from Campus Clarity on Tuesday, August 22 with a link to complete the training. All students at USD are required to complete this training in accordance with federal regulations. The deadline to complete this training is October 1, 2017. Students who do not complete the training by this date will be assessed a noncompliance fee in the amount of $250. Because this is an annual training, prior completion of the training does not exempt students from the requirement. If you have questions about the training, please visit the Title IX website or email titleix@sandiego.edu.
