Student Bar Association
Special Election Candidate Statements

- It would be a true privilege to work with Rachel on your behalf as Section 7's representative to the Student Bar Association. My work allows me to remain on-campus and with a flexible schedule, so I will be available both before and after class should any 1E student have an issue they want to discuss in person, and I'll make sure my phone number is available to all. I'll also be able to attend SBA events more readily than most evening students, and will work with Rachel ensure that the concerns of 1Es are fully represented to the GULC community at large. Regardless of your choice, don't forget to vote!

- Hi all! Huge shoes to fill for the remainder of the term here, but I'd love a chance to get involved and make a difference in the Georgetown Law community. You're all an impressive bunch; that much was clear to me from the first week in September. The combination of this and the fact that I'm younger than most of you made me hesitate to get involved in the first weeks. Since that time, I've had the opportunity to get to know most of you, and have fallen in love with the culture of our school. I've also had a semester's worth of time to evaluate what elements of the student experience can be improved, particularly that of part-timers. I look forward to bringing to SBA a wealth of experience I gained working in similar capacities in undergraduate student government and earlier, especially with so many exciting events coming up this Spring, such as the Barrister's Ball. This job is mostly about hearing from all of you. I'm excited for those conversations to begin, and will always be open to any questions you might have. Fortunately, Rachel has been amazing (as always) and kept me abreast on many SBA matters over the past few months, so that I can hit the ground running in filling the remainder of the term. Thank you everyone!

All Georgetown Law students are members of the Student Bar Association, and are represented by a House of Delegates and Executive Board. The bimonthly meetings listed on the Calendar are open to everyone and include an Open Forum for any student to share a suggestion or concern. All students also have the opportunity to serve on a faculty-student committee and share in SBA-sponsored programs and special events, including ways to interact with faculty and alumni and just have some fun.
The SBA works through a variety of committees and through individual initiatives to make positive changes to campus policy, engage in dialogue with members of the faculty and administration, and host events for the Georgetown Law community.
