  We, the Black Law Students Association of William S. Boyd School of Law, exist for the support, guidance and direction of Black students in academic, professional and social endeavors. Our main function is to assist members in the development of their legal careers and to provide opportunities for exposure to various areas and aspects of the legal profession.We recognize the need to act positively in the development of the Black community, to encourage cooperation and closer ties between members of the law school's Black community and to establish a vehicle through which our concerns are brought to bear on Boyd policy and the community at large.The National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA) is a national organization designed to articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of Black law students. As the largest student run organization in the country, NBLSA encourages the development of talented, socially conscious, lawyers of tomorrow. NBLSA is compromised of six regions, representing over 6,000 members across the nation.
