WELCOME TO THE WAYNE STATE LAW SCHOOL
CHAPTER OF BLSA!!!
BLSA is a national organization that offers a
network of educational support and career guidance for minority law
students throughout their law school career. BLSA's mission at Wayne
State University is to encourage black academic excellence, promote
professional development, and sponsor community outreach.
BLSA aspires to maintain a system of academic
support for the first- year law students in order to provide a sound
basis for academic performance, to facilitate communication between
the law school student body and faculty in order to address the
needs, goals and concerns of Black law students, to ensure adequate
representation of Black persons in the staff, faculty and student
body, to focus upon the relationship of the Black law student and
the Black attorney to the American legal structure, to cultivate
greater awareness and direct activities that demonstrate commitment
to the needs of the Black community thru proactive teaching events
and projects, to preserve and articulate the historic and
contemporary treatment of African Americans in American
jurisprudence, and to articulate and promote the professional need
and goals of black law students.
BLSA will provide you with mentors, academic
support workshops, career placement assistance, and interaction with
other professional students at WSU. BLSA has a plethora of events
planned for the upcoming school year, such as brown bag luncheons,
symposiums, a Christmas Party, Black History Month festivities,
Sunday dinners, a date auction, Senior Send-off, and much more.
Membership is always open and we welcome new and
diverse members that are committed to our mission at Wayne Law.
We welcome you to our BLSA family and look forward
