ABOUT FORDHAM BLSA
The Fordham University School of Law's Black Law Students Association (BLSA) supports our students in their studies, facilitates communication between our students and other legal professionals, and strives to foster the Black community's understanding of and access to the law.
We host a number of events throughout the year to advance these goals, such as general meetings; informational panels addressing issues that affect minority students and the Fordham community at large; exam taking workshops; sponsorships for students to attend relevant legal conferences; and alumni events, aimed at connecting current and former BLSA members and friends with one another.
