Welcome to the WCL Student Bar Association Website!
The Student Bar Association is divided into three parts: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. The Executive branch of the SBA is responsible for running and overseeing the SBA as a whole and its organization. The Legislative branch is in charge of recognizing and regulating student organizations and programs, distributing funds to organizations, and addressing concerns of the student body. The Judicial branch is is responsible for any issues or controversies that may arise within or between student organizations, due to the SBA Constitution, or as requested by the Administration of WCL.
