Welcome!

As an affiliate of the National Black Law Students' Association, MBLSA focuses on sensitizing MLAW's environment to the needs of the Black law student community, promoting the professional needs of our constituents, and assisting in the recruitment and retention of Black law students and faculty.

MBLSA seeks to develop unity among underrepresented students so that they can express the concerns and problems faced on campus.

MBLSA creates an atmosphere of self-respect and gives minorities on campus an opportunity to network and explore all of the different options that the University of Michigan has to offer.
