The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is a professional, nationally affiliated organization of black law students dedicated to improving opportunities and diversity in legal education.

We seek to promote the educational, professional, and social needs of black law students. Our organization actively engages the legal community to bring about meaningful change in order to meet the needs of the black community.

All are welcome to participate in our many activities held throughout the year. Members of our organization work together to promote diversity and social equality.
