About Georgetown BLSA

The Georgetown University Black Law Students Association strives to provide quality programs and resources  that meet our members' academic and professional needs. Further, as an organization founded on the principles of activism and service, we are committed to advocating for social justice and serving our local, national, and global community. Georgetown BLSA is dedicated to addressing the needs of our members on the Law Center campus and in society as a whole. We hope that in the process of achieving this end, we can empower our members to give back to the legal profession and their community.


At the Law Center, BLSA members benefit from a wide range of social, academic, and professional events each semester, including academic workshops, game nights, happy hours, and exclusive networking events with private law firms and public interest groups. Some of our signature programs include the 1L BLSA Bootcamp, our tutoring program which provides tutors to our 1L members for each of their core classes, and our BLSA mentorship program. The following tenets guide the chapter's programming and initiatives:


  • Ensuring Georgetown Law’s administration addresses issues pertinent to the Black student body;

  • Preparing Black students for legal careers through various legal networks, programs, and academic initiatives;

  • Coordinating community service and social justice events that aid the District of Columbia;

  • Serving the unique needs of diverse students generally; and

  • Providing social events and building a space for Black students to bond and develop relationships that will benefit them (and future employers) beyond law school.

Today, Georgetown BLSA reflects the vibrant and strong Black student body that is integral to the diversity of Georgetown University Law Center. We are leaders, scholars, and activists. But above all, we are a community!
