Latin American Law Students Association
Mission & Goals:
To work independently, and with other organizations, towards a common goal: bringing a reputation of excellence to Elon Law.
To establish a well respected organization that emphasizes on aiding the Latin-American community within Elon Law and Greensboro as a whole.
To establish a well respected organization that emphasizes on minimizing the widely perceived cultural gap between Latinos and Americans.
To set up voter registration drives in alliance with the Latino Coalition of North Carolina.
To provide support to Latin-American students entering Elon Law.
To provide support to the community of Greensboro by setting up bilingual (English-Spanish) VITA outings (Income Tax Form aid in alliance w/the Business Law Association).
To team up with Que Pasa News Media and El Norte News Media in order to solidify LALSA as an organization that wants to bring important legal decisions/news to the Latino community.
This can be accomplished by having members act as guest columnists for these newspapers. Simultaneously, this will advocate that Elon Law finally has a Latin-American organization whose goal is to advocate for its community as a whole.
To bring cultural enrichment to Elon Law by hosting outings aimed to demonstrate the various aspects of Latino culture and its adaptation into American culture (i.e. Latin-American culture).
