A primary goal of BLSA is to foster relationships with the local community and address issues affecting Black Law Students. To accomplish this, BLSA participates in and sponsors several outreach efforts including;
-Black History Month Celebration
-Dress for Success Clothing Drive
-Thanksgiving Food Drive
-International Service Trip
-Oliver Hill Scholarship
At times, the pressure of law school can be overwhelming. For this reason, BLSA makes it a priority that each one of its members achieves lifestyle balance. The Virginia Law Chapter of BLSA sponsors a number of social events to help students get to know each other, create law school memories, and have fun.
We also take pride in supporting the Social Action efforts of our surrounding community. Our chapter encourages our members to not only be informed citizens, but engaged, culturally responsible advocates.
