The following tools are designed to assist student leaders with planning for their year.
Student Leader Meetings: Held each Fall, representatives from each active student organization are asked to meet with Administration to discuss expectations, rules, regulations and budgetary concerns.
Student Activities Fair: Held each Fall, this event is the threshold opportunity for all students to learn about the active student group offering at the law school for that academic year. Registered student groups must request a table so that adequate table space can be provided for all student groups. Any questions, please contact Giselle Santibanez-Bania at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Budget: All student organizations are allotted funds for refreshments for one kick-off meeting per semester, calculated at $2/person, up to a maximum of $100.00. In addition, if a student group invites a speaker, the group must submit a signed speaker clearance form to receive funds for refreshments at the speaking event. If a student group wishes to host a larger event or has additional financial needs, the group must submit a comprehensive budget proposal for the entire academic year to Giselle Santibanez-Bania. All event proposals must be made in conjunction with your faculty advisor.
Application for New Student Group or Renewal of Existing Group: This application must be submitted to Giselle Santibanez-Bania prior to the organization's receiving funding for the academic year. In addition, every organization must have a constitution on file in order to receive funding.
Working with the Alumni Association Office: If your organization's initiatives require alumni information, please contact Ann Fritzsche, Director of Alumni Relations, at email@example.com.
Offering Continuing Legal Education Credit (CLE): If your group plans to hold a speaker event that meets the content requirements of the Illinois Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board, www.mcleboard.org, and you wish to invite attorneys to your program, please contact Christine Heaton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-915-7926.
