Middle Eastern Law Students Association

The Middle Eastern Law Students Association (MELSA) seeks to foster an inclusive environment and community network for Michigan law students of Middle Eastern descent, including Arab, North African, Iranian, Turkish, and Armenian students. MELSA hopes to provide a space at Michigan law, where students of Middle Eastern descent can feel comfortable speaking on a range of social, legal and political issues central to their identities. MELSA will also work in tandem with other affinity groups, to give Middle Eastern students and other minorities a stronger voice on campus. MELSA will host a range of events, including engaging the campus community through panel discussions and events that touch on matters pertaining to the Middle East, its people and the diaspora. MELSA will also provide opportunities to connect Middle Eastern students with resources to support them in law school and with career goals.
