The majority of student groups receive their funding through the SBA, which is then allocated to an internal financial account within the law school, and overseen by the Office of Student Affairs. Initial funds are distributed at the beginning of the school year, once they have been received from the University.
Before receiving funds, each group must have their budget request approved by the SBA, and the group Treasurer must attending a training session put on by the Office of Student Affairs. The group Treasurer is responsible for tracking and monitoring the expenses of the group and must keep accurate financial reporting records. The Treasurer must also sign off on all approved expenses and student reimbursements, which are then submitted to the Office of Student Affairs for review.
