​​The National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA) is a 501(c)(3) corporation and the nation's largest student-run organization representing nearly 6,000 minority law students from over 200 chapters and affiliates throughout the United States and six other countries. BLSA represents the views of minority students and other students of the law school who are members of BLSA; promotes the welfare of its members through educational, professional, cultural, and social programs; and provides a forum for the discussion of local and national issues affecting both the minority law student community and the law school as a whole.
