Student
Organizations

UC Law SF is home to multiple student organizations, journals, and teams – and they make up the lifeblood of student life on campus.  Through their events, mentorship programs, and community engagement, our student organizations help students grow their professional networks and connections, develop skills, explore opportunities on and off campus, and build lifelong friendships.  Approximately 50 to 70 student organizations register with the campus annually, and our currently active ones are listed below.  In addition, we also have multiple other student engagement opportunities, some of which are listed below as well.
