Message from the President

Welcome to Georgetown Law! My name is Ryan Shymansky, and I'm the President of the Student Bar Association (SBA). The SBA is the Law Center's student government and is tasked with student advocacy and representation, supporting student organizations, and putting together campus-wide programs.

What does that mean in practical terms? On one hand, it means that SBA manages many signature social events at Georgetown Law, including Barrister's Ball and Fall Float. On the other, it means that we're the ones pushing for on-campus changes and improvements, like installing more bike racks and creating an automated grade-release email alert system. 

Every student at Georgetown Law is a member of the SBA. The SBA is led by a House of Delegates, which in turn is led by the Executive Board. First years are eligible to run for the House of Delegates each Fall election cycle, while elections for other seats and the Executive Board are held each Spring. Engaged elections are what give us a mandate to work for the student body, so I encourage every student interested in the SBA to consider running for a seat in the House of Delegates.  

If you have any questions at all about SBA or our mission, please reach out to us via email at For regular updates, check us out on our Facebook and Twitter sites.
