Sara Salono - Candidate for SBA Secretary
My name is Sara Solano, and it would be my honor to serve on your Student Bar Association executive board as Secretary. I’ve spent the last year learning the nuances of this important organization as a 1L Senator, and I truly believe that we at SBA can and do truly make a difference to the student body’s experience here at Miami Law. With my established involvement and dedication to this university behind me, I will make it my personal goal to continue fostering transparency within the organization, supporting students’ concerns and input, and focusing on issues and undertakings that will actually improve students’ experience both socially and professionally. The current job market in the legal profession is focused not only on academic competency, but an understanding of the importance of networking and being prepared to undertake a bona fide career come graduation. I believe that this is a vital skill for students, and I cannot wait for the next year to continue facilitating practical professional experience for our students in the legal field. Get ready for some beautiful Hearsays, Miami!

From that experience, I hope to bring to the Student Bar Association the values of compromise, sound budgetary insight, and most importantly, accountability to those whom I serve. I’ll work to make the SBA an accessible resource to every law student, and see to it that the law school works for you. I look forward to sharing ideas with everyone about how to most effectively achieve that end.

As your 2L Senator, I will continue to be accessible and to always make decisions that are truly representative of you.
Leah Aaronson - Candidate for 2L Senator
My name is Leah Aaronson and I’m running to represent our 2L class as your SBA Senator. I served as your 1L Senator in the fall and, while my term seemed short, would like to continue working with the SBA to maximize the opportunities available to us here at Miami Law. Last semester, I began the process of coordinating additional monitors in the library for students to connect their laptops with so to assist them in legal research. If re-elected, completing this project will be my first endeavor. I have tons of other new ideas and encourage hearing yours. Vote for me!
