Black Law Student Association (BLSA)

BLSA's purpose is to articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of students requiring support, emphasizing black law students and other students who have minority representation in the law school community. A goal is to foster and encourage professional competence among underrepresented students. BLSA strives to develop services that are beneficial to the community at-large. BLSA assists law students at the College with their legal studies by developing various support and study groups that will enable the College of Law to better retain its valued minority law students.
