We're so excited to have you in the BLSA Community. The Black Law Students Association at YLS maintains the goal fostering an inclusive community and providing as much support as possible during your time here. We take an intersectional approach to everything we do, and we do our best to ensure all members of YLS’s Black Community feel welcome and heard. BLSA has a variety of resources to ensure that your law school experience is successful, including academic and professional support.
We kick off fall semester with our retreat to welcome new members into the community. During the course of the year, we host events to connect students with professors, law firms, and judges as well as the opportunity to engage with the greater New Haven community. Never hesitate to reach out to 2L's and 3L's in the BLSA community, we're here to help and are looking forward to getting to know you all better!
