Student Representation on Faculty Committees

Student participation in governance is highly valued at UW Law. The Student Bar Association appoints the majority of student representatives on faculty committees. Student participation is also valued on the standing and ad hoc committees that are established by the Dean. At present, the following committees have student members:

  1. Curriculum and Academic Policies Committee – reviews course proposals and recommends to the full faculty possible changes to the curriculum. The SBA appoints two student members.
  2. Faculty Appointments Committee – screens candidates for identified searches and recommends appointment to the full faculty; the student reps organize student interview sessions for all on-campus interviews and summarizes student feedback to help inform deliberation. The SBA appoints three student members.
  3. Admissions – reviews applicant files and makes admissions recommendations. The SBA appoints four 3L student members.
  4. Dean’s Advisory Committee on Diversity and Inclusion – advises the Dean on how to create a more diverse and inclusive UW Law. The Committee includes representatives from law school affinity organizations (APALSA, BLSA, NALSA, Disability Law Alliance, Outlaws, etc.) and representatives from the graduate programs. The SBA appoints one student member to each subcommittee: Admissions, Communications, and Events.
