Student Bar Association

All students enrolled in the full-time academic programmes at the University are members of the Student Bar Association (SBA). The SBA is governed by its own constitution and operates under the general guidance and supervision of a Faculty Council headed by the SBA Faculty Advisor. This allows the SBA to function with substantial autonomy, while being able to engage in a wide range of activities impacting the lives of students on campus.

The SBA has earned a formidable reputation for its wide range of events and activities – be it mooting, legal services, literary and cultural competitions or academic publications. The SBA Constitution provides for the yearly formation of a number of Activity Based Committees (ABCs), each having a specific focus. The individual members of each ABC are chosen on the basis of merit in the respective area. Each ABC is headed by a student Convener elected by the particular committee’s members, and its functioning is supervised by a faculty advisor.

The University funds the intra-institutional activities of the various ABCs, while individual committees raise external sponsorships for their respective inter-institutional events and activities. Furthermore, every class elects two student representatives who together form the Class Council. This body liaises with the faculty on academic issues.
