Campbell Law Class of 2025,

First and foremost, welcome to Campbell Law School. I hope the start of your semester is going well, and I look forward to getting to know you all better as the year goes on. As for now, the time has come for our 1L and FLEX Student Bar Association and Honor Court elections.

The Student Bar Association (SBA) is the governing body of the law school. SBA oversees all student organizations and is the representative voice to law school faculty and administration. SBA is made up of 23 positions: 4 executive board members, 18 representatives (6 from each class), and 1 representative for FLEX students. SBA meetings occur bi-weekly throughout the semester, alternating between Mondays from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Sunday from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. In addition to meetings, there is a required SBA Retreat on Saturday, August 27th from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. located at the school.

The Honor Court is the enforcement body of the law school. Honor Court investigates and enforces the academic honor code and the student code of conduct. The Honor Court is made up of the Chief Justice, Office of the Attorney General, Defense Counsels, and 9 Honor Court Justices (3 from each class). Justices are required to sit on the bench and vote in an array of hearings, including those of Probable Cause, Plea Acceptances, and trials related to other Honor Court matters whenever called to serve by the Chief.

The Elections Information Session will be held this Thursday, August 18th, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in classroom 105. We strongly encourage all prospective candidates to attend.

You must be nominated by one of your peers in order to be a candidate for an open position. Any other Campbell Law student, regardless of class, may nominate you as a candidate. The nomination positions include:
*  Six (6) 1L SBA Reps;
*  One (1) Flex SBA Rep; and
*  Three (3) 1L Honor Court Members. (FLEX Students classified as 1L can run for this position.)
The nomination process will open at 6:00 p.m on Thursday, August 18th, and will close at 5:00 PM on Monday, August 22nd. You may begin campaigning as soon as you submit your nomination form. However, before you begin campaigning, you must first read the current version of the SBA Constitution AND the Elections Bylaws, both of which I have attached to this email. All campaign rules will be enforced. Please govern yourselves accordingly. Pay special attention to the rules on electronic campaigning and spending limits. Remember that the spending limit on campaign materials shall not exceed $100. Violation of the Election Bylaws is an Honor Court violation, and will result in the applicable proceedings and investigations.

Attached you will find the SBA Candidate Nomination Form. This form must be completed by both the Nominating Person and the Candidate by the August 22nd deadline. Electronic signatures or typed names used as signatures are allowed. Once the form is completed, the Candidate must upload the form as a PDF by clicking here<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScTjU9fit_NlQDLoCxC0qTH6tX_ARVgnfaULT7slS6_esiLeg/viewform?usp=sf_link> by 5:00 PM on Monday, August 22. Late submissions will not be considered nor appear on the ballot.

Elections will be held virtually. Polls will open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, August 23rd and close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 24th. You will receive an email on Tuesday, August 23 with the link and details for voting. Once the results have been processed and votes have been tallied by the SBA Elections Committee and certified by the Honor Court Chief Justice, the results will be posted on the window of the SBA Office and emailed to the full student body.
We are extremely excited to welcome our newest members to both the Student Bar Association and Honor Court. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to stop by the SBA and Honor Court offices located through the door in the student commons, or email the Chair of SBA's Internal Affairs Committee (Hannah Ingalls, h_ingalls0403 at email.campbell.edu<mailto:h_ingalls0403 at email.campbell.edu>); the Honor Court Chief Justice (Jacob Young, jayoung0805 at email.campbell.edu<mailto:jayoung0805 at email.campbell.edu>); or myself.
