The Stanford Law School Advanced Degree Student Association’s primary aim is to support the integration of the advanced degree students into the academic and social life of Stanford Law School and facilitate informal interaction with other members of the wider Stanford University community. The Association also strives to assist its members in pursuing their academic and professional goals.
The Advanced Degree Student Association was established by students attending one of the three master's programs or the doctoral program at Stanford Law School. Admission to the programs is limited to exceptional students with a primary law degree earned outside the U.S., which means that the members of the Association are representatives of the international community at Stanford Law School. However, membership in and activities of the Association are open to all Stanford law students.
The 2011-2012 members of the Association are students enrolled in one of the four advanced degree programs offered by Stanford Law School:
The Association participates in the academic and social life of the Law School by organizing various lunch talks and co-organizing the annual International TGIF.
