A MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL CHAIR
Dear NBLSA Family,
By way of introduction, I am Anthony Collier, Class of 2022 G. Rollie White Public Service Scholar and SBA President at the University of Texas School of Law. Thank you for entrusting me with your vote of confidence. I am honored to be your 54th National Chair for the National Black Law Students Association, and I am excited about our year ahead. I thank our past National Chair, Rachel Barnes, and the 53rd National Board of Directors, who led us through such a pivotal moment in history. We hope to continue to move our organization forward, and I outline some of our upcoming initiatives below.
Our administration will focus on reinvesting into our members and increasing national support for local and regional programming. We will also strengthen our national membership by promoting the importance and benefits of joining NBLSA. As dues-paying members of NBLSA, you are paying for a service, and we will give you a return on your investment.
We are committed to our mission of increasing the number of culturally responsible Black and minority attorneys who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community, which is why I am proud to announce that we are launching the NBLSA Pre-Law Fellows. To increase the number of Black and minority attorneys, we first must increase the number of Black and minority law students. We will provide our Pre-Law Fellows with financial support for comprehensive law school preparation to equip them with the necessary tools to gain admission into law school and excel once they arrive.
On behalf of the National Board of Directors and Executives, I thank you for supporting NBLSA. If you would like to connect with NBLSA, please feel free to contact me.
In NBLSA Service,
National Black Law Students Association
J.D. Candidate, Class of 2022
