The goal is to advocate for students interested in law school and provide them with opportunities and resources to which they may not have access.
Some of the activities that the NBLSA has sponsored or organized are law school visits, guest lectures, pre-professional panels, admission counselor and/or law professor visits to campus, Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) Forum trips, and academic workshops with the Rinella Learning Center. The chapter is always open to new members and ideas.Learn More
