What is the LBA?

The Legal Basketball Association (LBA) is a co-ed student basketball league here at the University of Oregon School of Law. The LBA is made up of twelve teams of 7-8 students that play four games a week for about 30 weeks throughout the school year. Overall there are over 700 games played in a season.

Students show their dedication by showing up all year for games that start at 7:00 am, no small feat for a group of grad students who are swamped with papers and assignments, not to mention the stress of finding work and internships.

The league is modeled after the NBA, with a lottery, draft, All-Star game and playoffs. Our All-Star game is an opportunity to raise money for charity. Last year we raised over $500 dollars for the Student Hurricane Network, and this year we're aiming for $1000 dollars for Partners in Health.
