The George Mason University Student Bar Association (SBA) is our student government organization, devoted to supporting and encouraging academic excellence and professional growth among members of the law student community. The SBA works with the law school administration to ensure rights of individual law students and to facilitate communication among students, faculty, administration and alumni. The SBA also acts as the umbrella organization for all other student-run organizations at Scalia Law. In addition, the SBA organizes and sponsors many law school events, including first-year orientation, the annual Barristers' Ball, and various recruiting and open house activities
