Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA)

‘بِسْمِ ٱللَّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ (In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful).

“O you who believe, be upright for God, and be bearers of witness with justice!” [Quran, 5:8]

As Muslims at Stanford Law School, we find inspiration through the Islamic tradition and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in advocating for the oppressed and serving for goodness. We seek to provide community and support rooted in the Islamic framework for Muslims at SLS to encourage their social, professional, intellectual, and spiritual/religious development. In addition, we facilitate opportunities for the larger SLS student body to explore the intersection of Muslim/Islam and the law.

This includes raising awareness around legal topics affecting Muslims such as Islamic law, discriminatory national security policies, human rights violations during the War on Terror, and religious freedom.
