Black Law Students Association
The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is a forum for law students to share and solve problems unique to African-American and minority students in the law school community. BLSA has made a commitment to proportionate representation in the professional arena, supported by sponsoring workshops and symposia and by supplying individualized academic and professional assistance.
The Black Law Students Association sponsors social events throughout the year, and speaks on behalf of the needs of African-American and minority students to the administration, faculty, and student body. The Black Law Students Association is affiliated with the National Black Law Students Association.
