The Society of Bar and Gavel was established in 1949. It is an honor society that recognizes an individual student's outstanding service and dedication to goodwill. As a measure, The Society of Bar and Gavel seeks new members who are involved in community service and exhibit exemplary character, leadership abilities, and a positive attitude.

Membership into The Society of Bar and Gavel is an honor and a commitment. We require active participation and involvement so that our organization can continue to provide service to the Law School and the Greater Miami communities.

Anyone nominated must fill out an application in order to be considered for membership. A student nominated for membership will be informed that he or she have been nominated and will be asked to complete an application. Anyone interested in membership is encouraged to fill out an application. Students need not be nominated to be considered for membership. 

The application and nomination forms are in Word format. Before submitting the form save the document in Word format. Please follow the instructions on the forms and email it to

For more information about the application process and answers to questions on how you can become part of the Society, please contact any of our members or e-mail us at The Society encourages anyone who feels he or she meets the high standards of membership to apply. The Society also encourages students to nominate other students who may be 'flying under the radar' and deserve to become members.
