Black Law Students Association

The National Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is the nation's largest student-run organization representing nearly 6,000 minority law students from over 200 chapters and affiliates throughout the United States. Since its foundation in 1966, BLSA has been seeking to promote the professional needs of African-American and minority law students by promoting professional competence and increasing awareness of the needs of the community.

The Benjamin L. Hooks Chapter of BLSA at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law is devoted to providing opportunities and benefits for students and the community. BLSA provides its members with professional networking and mentorships, study tips and aids, social events, and the opportunity to participate in community service/pro bono activities. In addition, our Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Team and Frederick Douglass Moot Court Team continue to succeed and compete in the Southern Region of BLSA's competitions, as well in the national competitions. BLSA makes it a point to be available and accessible to all students, not solely African-American students.
