Black Law Student Association
Purpose: To further the academic, social, and professional needs and goals of the black law students. BLSA members work together to foster a successful learning environment--focusing on building the skills and confidence of its members. BLSA members also participate in social activities and community service projects. Two of BLSA’s most significant accomplishments are its annually hosted events: Law Day and Oliver Hill Weekend. On Law Day, BLSA invites undergraduate minority college students to the law school to give them an introduction to the school and encourage graduate education. Oliver Hill weekend was established to honor an African-American man who has contributed greatly to the legal field. On this weekend, we celebrate our successes of the school year and give out awards.
