Student Life

Barry Law students are encouraged to broaden their experiences by participating in student organizations. Our student groups (listed below) focus on academic, professional, social justice, political, religious, cultural, and social interests. Student groups cultivate a collegial and inclusive environment within the law school community and promote an intellectual exchange in an atmosphere of academic freedom.

When you participate in student groups, you will enhance your professional skills and build rapport with faculty advisors and peers. Whether you are a group member or leader, you will have the opportunity to interact with representatives of the organized bar and the judiciary, which will prove invaluable to your academic and professional career.
