Latino Law Students Association

LaLSA supports Latino/a students and provides opportunities for NYU School of Law students to be a part of and serve the wider Latino community.

We help students adjust to the demands of law school by offering programs that focus on professional and academic development, and providing a network of friends and alumni. At the same time, LaLSA is a source of dedicated Latino students who provide public service to the large and diverse Latino community, from mentoring Latino children in lower income neighborhoods to providing bilingual assistance to adults. We are also active in national law student groups that provide mentoring for prospective Latino law students nationwide. LaLSA social events are an integral part of how we work and create our community. Potluck dinners, salsa dancing in the city, parties, visits to museums, all provide time to socialize with fellow students and enjoy the many wonders of New York City.
