The Black Law Students Association at YLS maintains the goal of fostering an inclusive community and providing as much support as possible during our members' 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 each student's law school experience is successful, including academic and professional support.
We kick off fall semester with an event 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.
