About the SRBA

The Simon’s Rock Bar Association is for alumni who practice law and for Simon’s Rock students interested in the legal field. We can help one another identify professional opportunities or referrals, staff internships, secure deposition rooms, or share news and humor. We hope to feature profiles of alumni attorneys—please submit a biography or let us know if you’re interested in participating.

Occasionally, we will host workshops and events – online and in the world – that relate to matters of legal practice. There are no dues for this association.

It would be fantastic if you could offer an internship or project to a current student. Please see Simon’s Rock’s Career Services page to learn more about internships, mentoring, and a new and exciting way to connect, Rocker Office Hours:
