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 to getting to know you better!!!
