Student Organizations

Vanderbilt law students are active, public-minded and diverse - all qualities reflected by a wide variety of thriving student organizations at the law school. Even with little free time, most students find it worthwhile to join one or more organizations for professional advancement, personal enhancement, altruism, and networking - or simply to offer a welcome release from the demands of law study. This section provides brief descriptions of current student organizations and the names of officers to contact for more information.

The Office of Student Affairs serves as the administrative point of contact for Law School student organizations. We are located in Suite 154 of the Vanderbilt Law School Building. For more information please email Chris Meyers or call 615-322-6826 . While we cannot provide personal contact information for our student leaders, each organization has an e-mail account that is monitored by their officers. These e-mail addresses may be obtained by clicking on each organization's link below.

Many students, faculty, and staff regularly attend Blackacre, a weekly social gathering sponsored by a student organization. Themes range from the Animal Law Society's Cutest Pet Contest to Black Law Student Association's Black History Month Jeopoardy. There is always a great mix of food, drinks, and community!
