We're supporting, championing, and advocating for Canada's next generation of Black lawyers
BLACK LAW STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION OF CANADA
The Black Law Students’ Association of Canada (BLSA Canada) is a national, student-run non-profit organization founded in 1991. We are committed to supporting and enhancing academic and professional opportunities for hundreds of Black law students across the country, in both official languages. This commitment extends to black high school and undergraduate students and the community generally through our mentorship initiatives and our charitable initiative, BLSACares.
BLSA Canada believes that mentorship is integral to the promotion of equality. We can all be mentors, helping those a step behind us, and we must all be mentees, learning from those ahead.
BLSA Canada seeks to create a sense of community and belonging for Black law students at our National Conference and Civil Law Symposium. BLSA Canada members also participate in community development and volunteer projects in various cities across Canada.
We provide our members with opportunities for valuable, advocacy experience at our annual Julius Alexander Moot and Civil Law Negotiations Competition.
BLSA Canada exists to support Black law students towards a successful legal career. To that end our executive is always available talk – BLSA Canada is committed to supporting you any way we can.
