ALA is a vibrant community of students and faculty that seeks to create opportunities for NYU Law students to engage with the African continent in a legal context. The group hosts events on current affairs in Africa, organizes professional mixers and panels for students interested in working in Africa or on Africa related issues and aims to build a strong network of students, alumni and faculty with a commitment to sharing their knowledge and experiences of the region. ALA also works hard to offer various initiatives, from  advocacy to hands-on direct services projects.
