NBLSA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

 

About the NBLSA Member of the Month Program:

NBLSA is committed to honoring and recognizing our outstanding members.  Under the Member of the Month program, NBLSA will select six active members (one from each respective region) to serve as National Member of the Month. This program recognizes members for empowering fellow BLSA members and uplifting their communities. After an extremely competitive process, we select one member to represent the region of the month in serving as NBLSA's Member of the Month. We are so happy to showcase the member of the month referenced below. 

About the 1L Spotlight Program:

As we continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary and strive towards another 50 years of success, we want to remember that our members are the heart of our organization.  This year, NBLSA would like to continue to feature 1L members through our social platforms to highlight why they chose to attend law school and why becoming a NBLSA member is important to them.  We understand that 1L year can be a difficult transition from undergrad, a previous career, or other graduate level education. Our NBLSA Family is here to support our 1L members throughout your law school career and beyond!
 

About the Alumni Spotlight Program:

NBLSA is honored to continue to recognize our trailblazing alumni. Too often we don't not celebrate our alumni's accomplishments and the many ways they give back to NBLSA. As such, we are proud to honor alumni whom have given back of themselves not only to NBLSA, but to the legal community. We are truly proud to honor our notable alumni!

NBLSA PRE-LAW STUDENT DIVISION

In addition to our law students and alumni, NBLSA's Pre-Law Student Division exists to create a pipeline between undergraduates/college graduates and law school. The Pre-Law Division conducts programs on the Regional and National level and connects pre-law members with law school admissions offices to provide valuable insight on the application, financial aid, and curricular processes. The Pre-Law Division is critical to our goal to increase the diversity in the law school environment and, in so doing, the number of minority attorneys.
