student organizations

An affiliate of the National Black Law Students’ Association, this organization focuses on sensitizing the legal establishment to the needs of the Black community, promoting the professional needs of Black law students, and assisting in the recruitment, retention, and placement of students of color. BLSA also strives to foster and encourage professional competence within its membership through various academic and career workshops, sponsoring special programs such as their annual Kwanzaa celebration, a Heritage dinner, and programs for Black History and Diversity Months. In addition, BLSA works closely with other area BLSA chapters and with the law school’s Black Alumni Network (BAN) to develop career-related, social and educational programs.
