Native American Law Students Association

The Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) is a dynamic group of both Native and non-Native individuals. What do we have in common? We are all interested in issues currently affecting the Native American community. We aim to promote understanding and cooperation between Native Americans and other students concerning legal issues of great significance to all.

NALSA's purposes are threefold:

  • To increase awareness of federal Indian and tribal law.
  • To provide support for Native and non-Native students interested in Native American issues.
  • To foster community service towards Natives and non-Natives which promotes greater understanding between the two groups.

NALSA is organized for social and educational purposes, promoting unity and cooperation among Native American law students and providing a basis for working for the advancement of Native American people. To increase communication among Native American law students, Native American lawyers, and the general public, NALSA provides a forum at the University of Michigan for the discussion and exploration of legal problems affecting Native Americans. NALSA serves as an information source for Native American law students on educational financial assistance, educational opportunities, and employment opportunities.
