Group Study

San Francisco Law School encourages student interaction and promotes the forming of study groups. Student interaction is also facilitated by the various school clubs. While all students are members of the SBA, one can choose to participate in other student organizations such as Delta Theta Phi, Law Fraternity International; and the Black Law Student's Association.

Student Bar Association

The primary purpose of the Student Bar Association is to create a forum for the discussion of issues relevant to student interests and concerns. The Student Bar Association (SBA) receives funds for all students. All San Francisco Law School students are members of the SBA and are encouraged to take an active role.
