Howard University

Black Law Students Association

The Howard University Black Law Student Association (BLSA) is a Washington, D.C. Chapter of the National Black Law Student Association (NBLSA), a national organization created and designed to articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of Black law students. Our goal at Howard University School of Law is to foster and encourage professional competence; to focus upon the relationship of the Black attorney to the American legal system; to instill in the Black attorney and law student a greater awareness of and commitment to the needs of the Black community; to provide leadership training to the next generation of community and legal activists and to provide a forum in which African-American law students can participate in the continuing struggle for justice.
