The Latin American Law Student Association (LALSA) is the cultural affiliation group for Latin American and Hispanic students at OU Law. LALSA membership and opportunities are open to all law students. LALSA is dedicated to shared expression and appreciation of the Latin and Hispanic cultural diaspora, and the recruitment of diverse law students OU Law to expand diverse access to justice in the legal profession. We frequently hold social and educational events in the law school and around Norman. We also host speakers such as alumni-attorneys, professors, and international diplomats to lead informative discussions. We participate in college interest fairs for high school and undergraduate students. We are closely related to our partner diversity organizations at OU Law in supporting the diverse and inclusive expression of student identities through collective advocacy and fellowship.

Our student organization is related to its national professional organization, the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), which has a student-division we encourage our members to participate in. Thanks to the support of our administration, we have been privileged to attend the HNBA Annual Conference and the HNBA Annual Uvaldo Herrera National Moot Court Competition the past several years. Notably, OU Law offers a Legal Spanish course so Spanish-speaking students are ready to tackle the bilingual practice of law, which is critical to solving access to justice issues faced by the fastest growing minority population in the United States. 

Interested current, future, and alumni students as well as law firms, educators, and legal professionals are invited to follow us on Instagram. We encourage potential or incoming law student to tell your OU Law Admissions Counselor that you'd like to be connected with LALSA.
