The South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) was formed in 1994 in order to address the needs of students of South Asian origin at NYU School of Law. SALSA seeks to provide a platform for South Asian solidarity and a forum for the discussion of South Asian activism, minority issues, career pathways, and community outreach. SALSA has organized brown-bag lunches and discussion with South Asian attorneys, participated in happy hours with South Asian organizations from other area law schools, and organized professional development events for students. We also celebrate our South Asian heritage through dinners and cultural functions. Every year we organize a fall Diwali party (SALSA Ball) that is well attended by the entire NYU School of Law community.
