Black Lawyers Matter, Black Law Students Association

Student Life

With more than three dozen active student organizations at the School of Law, our students have ample opportunity to put their commitment to service, leadership and social justice to work. Many organizations sponsor speaker programs, while others coordinate community service opportunities. Still others provide for personal growth and introspection, or a chance to have fun with friends. The list of groups varies from year to year along with student interests.

Student Government

Student Government represents and protects the interests of students through dialogue and participatory decision-making while pursuing the St. Thomas Law mission. Committees within Student Government include Career and Professional Development (CPD) Advisory, Curriculum, Finance, Hiring, Judicial, Mentor Externship Advisory, Mission and Social. Student Government also organizes peer mentor program events, midterm town hall study sessions, finals town hall study sessions, the St. Thomas Law Christmas Party, alumni panel lunches, law prom, registration forum and the 3L graduation party.
