About ALSA

The AFRICAN LAW STUDENTS ASSOCIATION (ALSA) is based at Columbia Law School in New York. ALSA works to articulate, promote, and provide a forum for the Law School community to meet and pursue their interest in African cultures, societies and laws. We are especially dedicated to strengthening the legal community through mentoring and career development, and we welcome students, alumni/ae, professors, and professionals to help us fulfill this mission. Our goal is to sponsor and support events that provide insight into African law and culture and into current issues concerning the relationship of Africa to the United States and the rest of the world.
