Dean's Funding Guidelines
The Dean has authorized the Associate Dean for Student Affairs to provide funding for the following student activities:
- One hundred dollars in matching funds per student organization for a reception for speaker or speakers invited by the student organization to appear at an event open to the law school community. A student organization may request one such grant per year. The law school will not fund honoraria for, or the travel, lodging, and other related expenses of speakers brought to campus by student organizations.
- Funds for approved student participation at the regional or national conference of parent organizations of student groups that are recognized by the SBA. One-half the cost of registration fees, travel, meals, and other reasonable expenses, not to exceed a total of $750.00 per event will be covered. Only one event per organization in each academic year will be funded. The balance of the costs should be obtained from other sources.
- Travel funds for student teams participating in competitions authorized by the Moot Court or DR boards that advance from regional rounds to national finals.
- Students can not fundraise from outside sources. If a student or an organization wishes to do so, they must speak to Georgia Woodruff, Assistant Director for Student Life and the Office of Advancement.
No student may sign a contract on behalf of the School of Law or a student organization. All contracts must be reviewed and signed by the Associate Dean for Administration and Finance.
