An independent mechanism for unified student action and a voice for academic, government, political, and social concerns.

At CUNY School of Law, the Student Government is an inclusive forum to address students' needs and concerns. Twelve representatives are elected from each class to represent the student body. Elections for second and third year representatives are held in the spring and elections for first year representatives are held in the fall. Any matriculated student, registered and in good standing, is eligible to run for a Student Government position. The Student Government elects students from within its ranks to serve on selected Law School Committees.

The Director of Student Activities coordinates the elections for Student Government and Law School Committees.
