School of Law

Student Organizations

Student Bar Association (SBA)
 
During the spring 2007 semester, Elon Law’s Charter Class elected the school’s first Student Bar Association (SBA). The Charter Class is represented by four officers and three class representatives. The SBA’s Mission Statement reads: “Our Mission is to create a forum for student leadership, community service, and social networking to support the University’s goals of engaged learning, professionalism and civic participation through open communication with Elon students, Elon faculty, and the community.” The SBA is the governing body that serves as the umbrella organization for other law school organizations and committees.


 
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
Amnesty International is a worldwide network of more than 1.8 million members working for human rights and against their abuses. Amnesty campaigns on issues such as women's rights, GLBT rights, ending the death penalty and torture, and releasing prisoners of conscience worldwide.

BLACK LAW STUDENTS ASSOCIATION
The Elon University School of Law Black Law Students Association serves as a voice for students of color, an advocate of minority issues and a vehicle for social activism and legal education. Through innovative programs and continual service, the Elon University School of Law BLSA strives to be responsive to the needs of its membership and the larger community.

DELTA THETA PHI
Delta Theta Phi is a coed Law Fraternity which seeks to create fellowship among lawyers, with significant focus on philanthropic and professional development activities.

ELON LAW SCHOOL DEMOCRATS
The local chapter pledges itself to support the philosophy and candidates of the Democratic Party. Furthermore, the local chapter declares its intention to support all efforts to increase the participation of law students in Democratic affairs.

ELON LAW SCHOOL REPUBLICANS
The Elon Law School Republicans actively support the Republican Party at the local, state, and national levels while developing the leadership skills and political knowledge of their members.

FEDERALIST SOCIETY
The Federalist Society was founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.

INNOCENCE PROJECT
The Elon University Innocence Project, in affiliation with the N.C. Center on Actual Innocence, reviews and investigates innocence claims made by prisoners incarcerated in North Carolina. The fundamental goal of the project is to review files and, upon discovery of a valid innocence claim, assisting prisoners in challenging their wrongful convictions. This project gives law students the opportunity to review, investigate, and make recommendations on real criminal cases.

INTERNATIONAL LAW SOCIETY
The Elon University International Law Society is an organization for students who are interested in international law and issues of importance on the international stage. The Society is dedicated to elevating awareness and fostering understanding in the field of international and comparative law. To promote these goals, the Society sponsors social and professional activities that encourage cultural exchange and academic discussion. It also provides a forum through which members may pursue their interests in developing a career in international law.

INTERVARSITY CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
The heart of our ministry is a witnessing community of students and faculty who make Christ known within the academic and professional worlds. Intervarsity will provide opportunities for students and faculty to gather in large and small groups for Bible study, prayer, discussion, and learning. Individual spiritual formation occurs as members share ideas, nurture their passions, and submit their thoughts and lives to God's Word.

PUBLIC INTEREST LAW SOCIETY
To what greater object, to what greater character, can we aspire as lawyers than to assist the helpless and friendless in a worthy cause? We say there is none.

WOMEN'S LAW ASSOCIATION
The mission of the Women's Law Association is to unite and provide both professional and personal support and development for the women at Elon University’s School of Law.
