Student Organization Registration

How to register your student organization

All law student organizations must register every year in order to be eligible for the benefits (i.e. SBA funding, room reservations, Sidebar submissions, space in the student organization office, etc.). In order to register your student organization, please complete the following process.

Student Organization Registration Process

The Student Organization Registration Form must be filled out completely and include:

  • An SBA Representative. Include this in the list of officers (e.g. “vice president/SBA rep”);
  • A Faculty Advisor.You must first contact your Faculty Advisor to confirm that they would like to be your organization's Faculty Advisor for the academic year; and
  • Student Organization Bylaws. The bylaws will be uploaded when completing the form. While each organization's bylaws can be unique to fit its needs, each set of bylaws must contain certain provisions. Please see the Bylaws Model for those requirements. You may also use the Bylaws Model as a guide should your organization not have any bylaws. Law Student Affairs maintains copies of each organization's bylaws; contact lawstudentaffairs@sandiego.edu to request a copy if needed.

The student organization registration process must be completed by May 31 in order to be registered for the upcoming academic year. 

It is important that you register your student organization by May 31 every year. Registration provides our office with information to keep in touch with your student organization over the summer. In addition, registration makes the officers in your organization eligible for the Student Leader Scholarship. Student organization officers are only eligible for the Student Leader Scholarship if the student organization is officially registered.

If you have any questions about registration, please contact the Office for Law Student Affairs at lawstudentaffairs@sandiego.edu or (619) 260-4651.
