The Armenian Law Students Association (ALSA) at Southwestern Law School was formed to provide a forum for discussion, networking and opportunities for both academic and professional advancement. By offering a supportive and social atmosphere, ALSA intends to further the development of attorneys of Armenian heritage into the American legal system. Further, ALSA members work closely with the administration and the Armenian Bar Association to prepare the next generation of responsible attorneys, who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
ALSA provides an essential avenue for students to meet and establish contacts with other associations as well as members of the legal community. The Executive Board of ALSA organizes lectures and seminars by prominent attorneys and judges, provides a mentorship program for entering members and organizes social events and academic clinics. The Armenian Law Students Association strives to increase awareness of Armenian concerns within the Southwestern community and assists in the preparation of responsible and informed attorneys.
