Latin American Law Students AssociationLALSA is an organization dedicated to serving Fordham Law students, alumni, and the community at large by maintaining a community for Latino/a legal professionals.
Within the law school community, LALSA devotes a substantial amount of its efforts to helping first-year students adjust to the rigors of law school. We coordinate academic panels, professional development workshops, a 1L Mentorship Program, and various other events to assist students and increase community bonding.
LALSA is actively involved with various legal societies, Latino/a bar associations and other law school chapters including but not limited to the Hispanic National Bar Association, the Puerto Rican Bar Association, and the National Latino/a Law Students Association. We retain strong ties with our alumni and remain committed to the local community by participating in various community service events. Each year, our efforts culminate in our Annual Alumni Dinner where we honor outstanding Fordham LALSA alumni and students. Ultimately, we strive to bring together the greater Latino legal community and promote Latino culture.
The 2012-2013 LALSA Executive Board looks forward to serving you.
