Latino/a Law Student Association (LLSA)

LLSA is committed to assisting its members to succeed and excel throughout their law school careers. LLSA accomplishes this by providing support programs which include workshops, study groups, access to study aides, and a mentorship program. Beyond academic support, LLSA hosts several social activities throughout the year, such as ethnic luncheons and parties. These types of activities are also excellent opportunities to socialize with other students as well as the professors outside the classroom.

Some past activities include a panel discussion focusing on ethics and the law that featured prominent Hispanic professors, lawyers, and judges. LLSA has also co-sponsored an immigration clinic with the INS for the DeKalb community.
