Class Officer Elections

Third-Year Class Officer Elections

Each year, the third year class elects a slate of Class Officers. The primary purpose of these officers is to represent the class to the Law School after graduation. The Class President’s role is to keep the class informed on issues of concern to the class, the school and the profession. The Class President also serves as the primary liaison between the Law School and the Class on fundraising matters. Class Officers also may be called on by the Dean of Students to help plan Graduation.

Each fall, the Office of Student Affairs coordinates the election of Class Officers for the third-year J.D. class. The officers are chosen in two separate ballots. The first ballot is for the office of Class President. The second ballot is for Class Officers.

LLM Elections

Class Officers

The LLM Class will elect 2 officers (President, who serves on CSR as LLM representative, and Vice President) at the beginning of the school year. These officers will assist in the development of programs and events of interest to members of that year’s class. The election will be run by the Office of Graduate Programs, and the Class Officers will work closely with the Executive Director of Graduate Programs on that year’s projects.

Class Speaker

The LLM Class will elect a Class Speaker at the end of the year. This speaker will represent his or her class by making remarks at Graduation. The rules of this election will be specified in advance.
