About Us

The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is a professional organization of black law students committed to furthering the academic, professional, and cultural needs and goals of the black students at the Law School. As an affiliate of the National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA), our chapter focuses on sensitizing the legal community to the needs of the black community, promoting the professional needs of black law students, and assisting in the recruitment, retention, and placement of black students.

BLSA seeks to develop unity among underrepresented students so that they can express the concerns and problems faced on campus. We are happy to create an atmosphere of self-respect and give minorities on campus an opportunity to network and explore all of the different options that the University of Michigan has to offer.
