Stanford BioLaw and Health Policy Society is comprised of students from Stanford’s Law School, Medical School, Graduate School of Business and graduate programs related to the biosciences. The organization was founded with the primary goal of promoting discourse on the myriad legal and policy issues surrounding biotechnology, healthcare, mental health, biomedical research and bioethics. A secondary goal is to inform the student body at Stanford about career opportunities at the interface of biosciences and the law, and provide networking opportunities with professionals in these fields.
The International Law Society (ILS) provides a forum for students interested in international law to interact with one another and engage in constructive dialogue. In addition to offering opportunities for getting to know other students and faculty who have international interests, ILS serves as a lobby to ensure that international law continues to be a priority for the Law School administration, arranges an annual Spring Break trip to learn about another country's legal system, and organizes speaking events and discussion groups.
SESLA provides information, job search support, and camaraderie for students interested in entertainment industry careers, especially the practice of entertainment-related law. These goals are achieved by sponsoring events that help to educate members about career opportunities in film, music, sports, theater, interactive media, and related fields.
SLATA brings together students who share an interest in technology law—how the law promotes technological innovation, limits technological abuse, and responds to technological change—and the application of technology to the study and practice of law.
The Mock Trial Program provides an opportunity for students to develop and showcase their oral advocacy skills. Interested students try out for the program during the early part of the fall semester by delivering a short opening statement.
