NYU School of Law Faculty Committee Student Representative Nomination Form

The Role of Student-Faculty Committee Student Reps

In keeping with two of the Student Bar Association's primary goals—providing an effective medium for the expression of student's views and maintaining an effective liaison between students, the administration, and the faculty—the SBA Board of Governors shall appoint student representatives to each of the faculty committees at the law school. Unless otherwise noted, students are full voting members of the committees. Student Representatives are appointed to one-year terms. Check the committee descriptions to find out how many student positions exist on each committee.

Virtually every policy decision affecting law students is made first at the committee level before going to a full faculty vote. Representatives will be expected to participate in meetings of the Faculty Committees and to work closely with the SBA to act in the best interest of students. Student representatives will also be required to report to the SBA Executive Board on a regular basis regarding the status of the committee and any actions taken by the committee.

The full list of committees with descriptions is appended. The Dean may create special committees to study or address specific issues. These positions will be posted as notice is received. For further information on faculty committees, feel free to consult the SBA Constitution or the SBA Bylaws or direct any questions and concerns to the SBA Board of Governors at
