Student organizations

Enhance your law school experience (and your resume) by getting involved with one of our student groups or clubs. From the Law Students' Association to Green Legal, there's something for everyone.

Law Students' Association

The LSA is a student-run organization that provides law students with various kinds of support while at the University of Saskatchewan. Although membership is voluntary, the LSA operates on a break-even basis and memberships help cover all costs involved in providing services and events. The LSA provides academic liaisons with faculty, and coordinates many social functions and athletic activities.
