Purpose:
Who is NBLSA?

The National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA) is a national organization created and designed to articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of Black law students; to foster and encourage professional competence; to focus upon the relationship of the Black attorney to the American legal system; to instill in the Black attorney and law student a greater awareness of and commitment to the need of the community; to utilize their expertise to initiate a change within the legal system that will make it more responsive to the needs and concerns of the Black community; and to do any and all things necessary and lawful for the accomplishment of these goals.

NBLSA is the largest student-run organization in America and has over 200 chapters at law schools throughout the country. This represents almost every ABA accredited law school, plus several non-accredited law schools. These chapters represent over 7,000 law students in six regions, which encompass 48 states.

Who is Texas A&M BLSA?

NBLSA's societal impact is enormous. In its effort to remain responsive to the needs of the Black community in general and the Black law student in particular, the NBLSA has initiated many worthy initiatives and is proud of its collaboration and partnering with other organizations, which have similar goals and objectives.

Texas A&M Black Law Students Association (BLSA) actively works to realize the goals of NBLSA. The local chapter volunteers within the Metroplex and works with several organizations to promote access to legal education, to provide information and insights to legal opportunities and to inspire minority youth about the possibility of a legal career. The BLSA chapter also works to ensure that students receive study aids and tutorials to assist them in being successful in the law school environment. The BLSA chapter regularly sponsors workshops to encourage professional and academic success. The BLSA chapter also promotes professional organization membership by ensuring that student members are active in many other organizations such as the Tarrant County Bar Association, L. Clifford Davis Legal Association, Dallas Bar Association, J.L. Turner Legal Association, and others.
