Mission Statement


This blog is a product of USF Law Student Bar Association (SBA) only and is not produced, monitored, or edited by USF Law's administrators.


Perspectives, the University of San Francisco School of Law Student Bar Association’s blog, aims to keep the student body informed of upcoming events, legal news, student perspectives, and serve as institutional memory by highlighting the many great events that the SBA and the various student organizations organize each semester. This blog serves as an example of the unrivaled dedication, ingenuity and community-oriented mindset of USF Law students. We hope that this endeavor positively adds to the creative, innovative, unique and intellectually rigorous law school experience that USF offers.


The Student Bar Association, the law school's student government, exists to serve as an active voice for the student body, and to foster a community based on our shared values.  To that end, SBA Members serve as Student Representatives on Faculty Committees that address specific aspects of our law school including Admissions, Faculty Appointments, Educational Programs and Academic Standards.  In addition, the Student Bar Association coordinates social, cultural, and intellectual programming to provide students with an opportunity to network, learn, and have fun outside the corridors of our classrooms.  In honor of our Centennial anniversary, last year the SBA introduced a host of new initiatives including the SBA Speaker Series, the Faculty Lecture Series, and the Centennial Challenge, a school-wide community service initiative designed to celebrate the law school's longstanding commitment to public service and community involvement.

The life of a law student is both busy and challenging, but the Student Bar Association will continuously strive to make the journey more enjoyable and fulfilling, and I encourage you to join us this year for a truly exciting series of events.  If we can ever be of assistance, please feel free to visit us in the SBA Office (Kendrick Hall, 114) or contact me directly at  Thank you for visiting our website.
