ALA is a vibrant community of NYU Law students, alumni, and faculty interested in legal, political, and socio-cultural affairs concerning Africa.

It creates learning opportunities for students interested in African legal affairs by organizing panels and discussions. Its annual ALA professional mixer gives members the opportunity to meet and network with a diverse group of attorneys - from both the public and private sectors - whose work involves the African continent. In addition, ALA's social mixers give members informal opportunities to further strengthen their friendships and shared interest in the continent.
