The Latino Law Students Association (LLSA) seeks to remedy the under-representation of Latinos in all segments of the legal community. We strive to increase the number of Latino students enrolled in the Law School. In working toward this objective, LLSA works closely with the Admissions Office on recruitment and admissions matters. Once Latino students enroll, LLSA provides an academic and social support network as well as a means of keeping abreast of Latino issues in the Law
LLSA is dedicated to increasing the number of Latinos in legal academia, especially on the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School. Part of this task involves locating prospective candidates and reviewing their accomplishments. The other part of this task entails informing and encouraging the Law School to recruit these prospective Latino faculty.
LLSA seeks to affect the world outside the Law School by exposing law students to issues of concern to Latinos. Guest lectures, symposia and panel discussions have been our primary means of providing a broader viewpoint in the Law School.
LLSA also serves as a contact with law firms and public interest employers interested in improving their minority representation. As it turns out, many of the people taking the lead at these law offices are LLSA alumni.
Students interested in the advancement of Latinos in the legal profession and in the Law School are urged to become members of LLSA. If you have any questions, please call 734-763-0285 or write in care of the Law School.
