WHY JOIN?

 

The National Black Law Students Association, for fifty years, has worked to develop culturally responsible Black and minority law students that excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
 
Our members are activists, thought leaders, and strategic thinkers. Our alumni are general counsel, judges, non-profit executives, and business operatives. We connect our members and alumni with unparalleled opportunities to network, seek new professional avenues, and develop life-long friendships.
