SLS Black Alumni Association

Our Mission

  • To build relationships among Black SLS alumni given the commonality of our experiences as Black students at SLS.
  • To engage with, support and mentor current BLSA students, creating a support network for them during law school and as they transition to legal practice.
  • To support SLS in ensuring that all students have a quality education regarding race and the law and in promptly addressing issues of racial diversity, equity and inclusion.
