Latinx Law Student Association (LLSA)

Mission

The Latinx Law Student Association helps Latino students to become effective participants in law school and to increase awareness about the legal issues affecting Latinx. Not only do we focus connecting our networks and social mobility within the growing Latinx community in Bloomington, Indiana, but also across the country.

About LLSA

Our group welcomes both Latinx law school students and individuals interested in the Latinx culture, history, and legal issues. We are an inclusive organization that advocates and discusses legal, political, and social issues that affect Latinx and other minority groups.  

Members enjoy the benefits of alumni networking organizations, the ability to learn from scholars and professors working on Latinx legal issues, scholarship opportunities, and other social events. Also, we invite everyone to come and share the experience of the vibrant Latinx culture at IU Maurer School of Law.

Our school is committed to diversity in the legal profession; therefore, we are interested and eager to bring students from different backgrounds and cultures. Our student body benefits from the interaction of different legal arguments shaped by culture, ethnicity, socio-economic background, and political views.

Some of our members volunteer at El Centro Communal Latino Legal Program, which provides legal services for Latinx in Bloomington, and others speak out and advocate for social justice and equality in legal forums and speaking engagements. Our organization brings speakers and creates events to bring awareness about issues affecting the Latinx community.

We want your academic and legal success to flourish at our institution, and we hope to work with you in our endeavor to bring ocial justice, equality, and awareness about the issues affecting Latinx and other minorities in the global community.
