Message from BLSA President:

NU BLSA’s purpose is to increase awareness, offer learning events, and provide employment opportunities for members of the Association and the Northwestern University community. We strive to provide a forum for the various discussion topics which concern Black culture. We also aim to serve as a support network for Black students and foster social interaction between Black students and students interested in Black culture.

BLSA has embarked on a year of dynamic events. We are absolutely enthused about fostering community and strengthening ties within Northwestern Law and the Greater Chicago area. Realizing that true strength is in our numbers, we believe that fortifying our coalition building endeavors, along with enhancing our academic enrichment activities, and community service will take our organization to new grounds!

I invite you to explore our entire website and learn more about our organization. I also welcome you to join and participate in our programming efforts. Please feel free to contact our chapter with any questions or concerns at I look forward to hearing from you.
