Welcome to the South Asian Law Students Association!

The South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) strives to provide an inclusive space for those identifying with South Asian heritage or culture. We hope to help members build community, develop relationships with other students and faculty, and access resources throughout their law school careers.

SALSA frequently joins with other affinity groups and student organizations at the law school to provide a diverse array of programming, including community events, social activities, talks featuring speakers from the legal and policy fields, and academic workshops.

1L year is really hard.…You’re just grinding all the time. And when you come out the other end, you realize that you’ve got skills to make changes in the world. And that feeling is so cool.”
