Recognizing the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the student body, the Student Bar Association aspires to represent each unique student. To accomplish this goal, the SBA listens to the problems and concerns accompanying each student and advocates the pertinent issues to crucial decision makers. The SBA supports and promotes diverse student organizations to supplement education, professional growth, and socialization. Hosting annual social events, the SBA promotes friendships and professional relationships.
Recent events in the Middle East have exacerbated tension worldwide, and our school is not immune to these issues. We echo Dean Hilbert’s sentiments condemning the horrific acts of terrorism and perpetrations of war crimes against innocent civilians of Israeli and Palestinian communities.
For those who have asked, the timing of our statement’s release reflects a cadence that supports a deeply considered, mindful response from your student leaders.
We understand the fear and anguish associated with seeing images of victims devastated by violence. We unequivocally refuse to accept any language that diminishes shared humanity, and we condemn all acts of hatred, especially to fellow members of our Mitchell Hamline community.
Our purpose is to always represent you, our passionate and intelligent student body, with peace and love, through good times and bad, no matter our differences.
Please remember to be kind to yourself and others during this time.
