SBA Advisors: Assistant Dean Erin Tomlin & Assistant Dean Leon Samuels

The SBA was founded to enrich and diversify the lives of every law student. By virtue of being admitted to the University of Idaho College of Law, each student is automatically a member of the SBA. The SBA is comprised of an Executive Board, a governing council, and student organizations operating under the auspices of the SBA. It is the responsibility of the SBA to ensure student organizations limited funds are allocated in an equitable manner. Once funds are distributed, the SBA organizations are charged with carrying out the mission of their respective organizations. Student organizations augment law school learning by providing their members with rich and meaningful events such as guest speakers and/or specific skills training. Service in the SBA is entirely voluntary. Board members, officers, and student leaders work tirelessly, without remuneration, to engender a spirit of collegiality and a truly rewarding and memorable law school experience.

Our aim is to bring together all those who regard adjustments to new conditions as more important than the veneration of precedent; who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, farmers, marginalized people and minority groups whose labor we respect; who seek actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.
