NORMAN — For the fourth consecutive year, the University of Oklahoma College of Law’s Black Law Students Association (BLSA) Chapter was named Regional Small Chapter of the Year. The award was issued at the annual Southwest Black Law Students Association (SWBLSA) Convention in January.

“The students that comprise the Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher BLSA Chapter at OU Law represent the very best of our community,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “Their tireless efforts for and commitment to social-political awareness enhances the student experience at OU Law, while also contributing to larger legal conversations that abound beyond law school.”

In addition to the chapter-wide award, a number of OU Law students and alumni received honors at the convention. First-year student Robert Jackson was honored as SWBLSA Member of the Year; second-year student Tonika Brown was elected SWBLSA Director of Community Service; and alumni Chris Staine (’10) and Judge David Lewis (’83) were inducted into the SWBLSA Hall of Fame.

“OU’s BLSA – from students to faculty and alumni – has always taken pride in serving others,” said OU Law BLSA President Stan West. “We could not be more proud to carry that legacy forward.”
