CONCORD LAW SCHOOL STUDENT GROUPS
Student Bar Association
The Student Bar Association (SBA) of Concord Law School at Kaplan University (CLS) is the student government association for all Juris Doctor and Executive Juris Doctor Students enrolled at CLS. Officers and representatives are elected by the students to represent them. SBA is a group of students from all years and majors who work together to teach and promote legal topics.
The SBA acts as a liaison between students and the administration of the law school, representing student concerns and interests. A primary function of the SBA is to assist incoming first year students in adjusting to the unique requirements of an online law school and legal education. The leadership of the SBA is committed to helping each student succeed and reach his or her maximum potential as a law student which, in turn, will prepare the student to be a future contributing member of the legal community. The SBA also explores ways to improve the educational experience at CLS.
- The SBA provides a constructive group of peers that will advance your learning and understanding of the law.
- The SBA runs a Facebook page to encourage student interaction: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ConcordSBA/
Since its creation, the National Federalist Society has played an integral role on law school campuses. The Concord Law School Federalist Society embraces the principle that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to the integrity of the Constitution of the United States of America, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is and not what they believe it should be.
To foster debate among students, academics, legal practitioners, and public policy experts at the law school level. To counter the tide of orthodox liberal ideology and combat the radicalism that has flooded the nation’s law schools.

American Constitution Society
The American Constitution Society provides a forum for Concord Law School students, faculty, and staff to promote a balanced and rational view of the basic tenets of our form of government as defined by the Constitution of the United States. Members believe that respect for human dignity and the individual rights and liberties set out in the United States Constitution deserve a renewed and prominent role in law and policy-making.
This Chapter intends to foster rigorous debate, consistent with the principles of civility, courteousness, dignity, and respect for others, which will enable members to become better educated about Constitutional issues and more aware of excessively political Constitutional interpretation by either side of the political spectrum.
- To reinvigorate the core values of the Constitution in order to equip our citizens and our leaders with a full complement of tools with which to create a better America for everyone.
