Support Barristers' Ball

The MSU Law Barristers’ Ball is a scholarship event with the goal of helping fund the education of the students at MSU Law. The Ball is hosted by the Student Bar Association and all proceeds go toward scholarships for our student law community. The Ball was attended by 407 students last year and we are tracking to make it to 450 this year.

Law school has a huge financial impact on the students at MSU and money should never be a barrier to education. The Barristers’ Ball attempts to help lift some of the weight of that heavy burden off of the students. The Barristers’ Ball has been running for countless years and is only made possible by the assistance and support of the community. The Student Bar Association greatly appreciates your time and consideration.

Money raised will go to fund the Barristers' Ball Scholarship Fund

The 2023 Barristers’ Ball hopes to raise $5,000 dollars for scholarships. These scholarships will be awarded at the Ball and will help to ease the financial burden of Law school for the student recipients.

MSU Law Student Bar Association

The Student Bar Association (“SBA”) is a student organization dedicated to the well-being of students enrolled at MSU College of Law. We act as your advocate on all matters affecting students. SBA puts the students at the top of its priority list and aims to be the one-stop shop for all things related to one’s journey through the storm that is law school. Relentless is our drive in improving student life both inside and out of the classroom, evidenced by the numerous events we sponsor, fund, or promote. Law school does not have to be a time where one sacrifices their well-being until it is over. SBA is here to ensure a proper balance is achieved and to help alleviate the common stresses we all find ourselves in.
