BLSA Alumni Advisory Board

Established in 2003, the Black Law Student Association (BLSA) Alumni Advisory Board's primary purpose is to provide guidance for the African-American students of Indiana Law. Board members work throughout the year, coming together on campus for an annual meeting, to provide input on such critical issues as recruitment, retention, networking and placement of the Black student population.
