  • Financial Information
    • Each student organization has a unique budget or "fund" number where finances are deposited and disbursed. Contact Finance & Budget Coordinator Theresa Baker for reports on your student organization account.
    • Most organizations (except law reviews/journals, Law Ambassadors, and some discrete clubs) are funded by the Student Bar Association. For funding information, budget request forms, special event request forms or travel funding, please visit the SBA Finance Committee website. All other organizations must contact their funding source or the Assistant Dean of Budget and Operations.
    • Please download the Student Leader Training document for information on approved expenses, reimbursements and sales taxes.
    • Deposit and reimbursement forms, as well as the Tax Exempt Form to give vendors in order to remove sales tax on purchases, can be found on this page under "Students and Student Organizations." All reimbursements and deposits must be submitted to the Dean’s Suite, 215. DU will not reimburse tax on purchases — no exceptions.

    • Please review the SCOL Posting/Advertising Policy and the DU Use & Consumption of Alcohol Policy to ensure your advertisements comply.
    • The Student Affairs Weekly Newsletter is distributed by the Sturm College of Law for informational purposes only. We strive to bring the latest events, deadlines, and announcements, keeping you informed and connected with our vibrant community. To maintain the integrity and relevance of our newsletter, we reserve the right to exclude content that is not directly affiliated with the University of Denver. Thank you for your continued support as we work to deliver a newsletter that best serves the needs of our students, staff, and faculty.
  • Resources for Outside Organizations and Events

    Denver Law appreciates the legal community’s willingness to offer a plethora of programs and pathways that support students’ legal careers. Such engagement often offers meaningful opportunities for students to pursue externships and secure jobs, grow their networks, and develop mentorship relationships with practitioners. They can also help students build confidence and expand their knowledge of the profession and legal practice. To help ensure such opportunities are implemented and disseminated in inclusive and supportive ways, Denver Law shares these best practices to assist outside/external organizations in their event planning and advertising to the Denver Law student community. We strongly encourage outside/external organizations to adhere to these practices. If you have any questions, please contact Associate Dean Alexi Freeman at
