Black Law Students Association (BLSA)
The College of Law chapter of this national organization is active in bringing national speakers to campus, sponsoring events for minority undergraduate students, and engaging in other activities intended to promote community and understanding of issues affecting students and others of African descent. An annual BLSA congratulatory banquet caps the year’s events. The group has established a mentor system through which interested students are matched with practicing African-American attorneys. College of Law BLSA members are frequently elected to serve on the national organization’s Midwest regional board.
