“The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is unique because of the commitment of our members to the organization and to each other. . . . BLSA has a unique history as a major actor in social justice initiatives and reforms at the Law School, and this is only possible because our members care so much about making BLSA and the Law School a better place for those to come.”

—Olivia Martinez ’23, President, BLSA
