Students at UDC David A. Clarke School of Law have diverse interests that are reflected in their varied student organizations. Many students are involved in student government, local and national bar organizations, and activities that promote their professional growth. They are also active in organizations that serve the community and promote diversity in the legal profession.

Student organizations formally recognized by the School of Law are listed below. Student organizations that have been formally recognized are entitled to use the School’s facilities for meetings and other activities, and may apply for financial support during the annual budget process. (See Student Handbook, Section IX.) Not all of these organizations are active each year.
