The Black Law Students Association (BLSA) is a professional organization of Black law students dedicated to service, mentoring, raising political and social awareness, and networking. BLSA works diligently in its efforts to increase diversity in the legal profession and to demonstrate that academic excellence in legal education is an attainable goal for black students. We strive to provide the black law students with the necessary resources to be successful in law school, and in practice in the legal community. 

Detroit Mercy Law’s BLSA chapter is an affiliate of the National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA).  We focus on academic enrichment, community service, fundraising to provide scholarships for our constituents, and assisting in creating a more diverse atmosphere at the Law School.
