Student Bar Association

The Student Bar Association (SBA) functions as the student government for Texas Tech Law, serving peer-elected officers to be the voice of the student body. The Executive Board of SBA plans the budgets for all student organizations, provides a forum for student grievances, and serves as external representatives of Texas Tech School of Law.

Mission Statement

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is an association of elected students at Texas Tech University School of Law. The purposes of the SBA is to act as the unified voice of the student body to advance academic excellence, promote mental wellness, and support every student's journey to acquire a quality legal education.

As the Executive Board for the SBA, our responsibility is first and foremost to the students. As 3Ls, we have seen the inter workings of the school and plan to put that knowledge to use for the entire student body. Having worked closely with student organizations, administration and main campus in the past, we are hard at work representing the best interest of the student body as a whole to them. We do a lot of our work behind the scenes, which is why the main goal of our administration is transparency. We want all students to know that they can speak to us about any issue they are having at any time. We know we cannot fix every issue overnight, but our goal is to be clear and transparent on what we can do to help.
