Join a Committee

WHO is eligible to join a committee?

Any current HLS student is eligible to join a committee. All you need to do is apply to be on any of the committees, show up to the committee meetings, and participate. You are also allowed to be an elected representative and a committee member simultaneously.

WHAT committee can you apply to?

You can apply to any of the following committees: Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Diversity Equity & Inclusion, Health & Wellness, Community Service, Events, Public Interest, HLS Talks, and International.

WHEN can you apply to a committee?

You can apply to be on a committee at any time during your law school career. The customary time to join a committee is at the start of the fall semester, but anyone interested should join regardless of the timing. 

WHY join a committee?

Committees are an integral part of the law school Student Government. Committees work directly with the Student Council, the administration, and students to make any necessary changes to the school. Anyone who is interested in joining should do so, as it is a wonderful opportunity and can connect you with all kinds of people and experiences.
