Message from the President
On behalf of the Student Body, welcome to Georgetown Law! We are so excited that you have either joined us at or are interested in this tremendous institution.
While law school can be challenging, competitive, and intense, it should also be very enjoyable! Every one of the students has taken a personal and unique journey to get where they are and we are all lucky to have such an amazing student body to get to know. Everyone will also have a very distinctive and self-directed experience as they go through their time at Georgetown. From our dedicated and innovative full-time students and amazing part-time students to our LLM's and SJD's making the most of their shorter time with us, your fellow students are all hoping to have as meaningful and important time at Georgetown as you are. One thing is certain: it will be over before you know it. As Student Bar Association President, it is my job to ensure that you get the most out of your time here.
The SBA is the student government of the Law Center, and it is the only organization on campus where every student is a member! Among other responsibilities, the Student Bar Association oversees the operation and budget of all student organizations, hosts campus-wide social events, and works with the faculty and administration in implementing campus policies that are productive for our students. The SBA is here to serve our students.
For current and future students interested in serving on the SBA, I encourage you to nominate yourself or a friend in our elections, work with professors and administration on a student-faculty committee, or better yet - reach out to us and ask how you can be involved. Whatever your individual path is or will be at Georgetown Law, I encourage you to get out of the library and involve yourself on campus. Join a student organization, volunteer for the pro bono pledge, or just take the time to meet your classmates, many of whom become lifelong friends. Law school can be a demanding experience, but ask any upper-level classmate and she or he will tell you that it can also be one of your most incredible and fun.
Parker Schnell, Student Bar Association President
