The National Conference


In addition to the activities held by our chapters within various law schools across Canada, our organization also hosts an annual national conference. Every year, we are proud to offer opportunities for formal and informal discussions about many subjects including legal policy issues, effective career strategies, evolution in substantive law and access to justice for marginalized groups. Moreover, it is a space for law students to network and learn from the experience of practitioners and other legal professionals.

Our 28th Annual National Conference will be held in Ottawa from February 14-17th, 2019 at the historic Lord Elgin Hotel100 Elgin Street, Ottawa, Ontario.
We hope that you will set aside the dates for the conference.

BLSA Canada reflects the diversity of the African/Black experience and welcomes allies from all backgrounds who also seek to make a meaningful contribution to social justice initiatives.

We welcome you to contact BLSA Canada to indicate the capacity in which you would like to take part in this event as it promises to be both enriching and entertaining.

*Registration opens on November 7, 2018, and will close on January 11, 2019*
