Calling Former SBA Leaders!
Former SBA Officer Reception

5-7 p.m., UNC School of Law
The 2018-19 Student Bar Association Board of Governors invites former Student Bar Association officers and their guests for a fun and informal gathering at the law school prior to UNC's Late Night with Roy, the 16th annual ceremonial season tipoff for Carolina basketball. Park at the law school, drop in for dinner and drinks, enjoy a short journey through SBA's historical highlights and vision for the future, and connect with other SBA officers spanning several decades of service to Carolina Law.
Former SBA Officer Community Meeting and Service Project
Saturday, October 13, Time TBA (3.5 hours prior to kick off), UNC School
Our collaboration with the Student Bar Association leaders
continues Saturday morning with an opportunity to give back to Carolina Law and
the Chapel Hill community. Former SBA officers and their guests are invited to
participate in a service project, led by the 2018-19 Board, in support of the
efforts of the Inter-Faith Council for Service, a not-for-profit
non-denominational social service organization that provides services in Chapel
Hill and Carrboro. While assembling birthday bags for the IFC to distribute to
families who have a child celebrating a birthday, the students will lead a
conversation on how to keep former SBA officers engaged with Carolina Law after
graduation. Whether you are a football fan or not, plan to stay and join the
festivities at Bluegrass and BBQ.
Unable to attend, but want to be included in future SBA
communications? Email Joe Fields 3L, SBA president at firstname.lastname@example.org.

1L College Renamed to Honor Julius Chambers ‘62
In August, Dean Martin Brinkley '92 announced one of our 1L colleges, previously named for UNC School of Government founder Albert Coates, was renamed Chambers College in celebration of the life of Julius Chambers ’62: civil rights leader and advocate, educator, founding director of the UNC Center for Civil Rights, and one of our most distinguished graduates. This change memorializes the law school’s connection to Julius Chambers and to the values he lived out in a storied career.
