Student organizations are an important component of the Ave Maria community, offering students an opportunity to grow academically, personally, professionally, and spiritually. Throughout the academic year these groups sponsor a variety of events, including speakers, debates, community service projects, and social events.
There are nearly twenty organizations which focus on a variety of academic, faith, and social activities. Some are chapters of national organizations such as the Black Law Students Association, the Federalist Society, the Knights of Columbus, and the Republican National Lawyers Association. Others reflect the interests of students such as the Women’s Law Association, the Military Law Society, or the Lex Vitae Society, the Law School’s pro-life organization. The Law School has a chapter of a national law fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta.
