The Black Law Students’ Association at the University of Calgary (UCalgary BLSA) is a student-run club founded in 2018. We are committed to supporting and enhancing academic and professional opportunities for Black law students. This commitment extends to Black high school and undergraduate students and the community at large.

UCalgary BLSA is concerned with challenges faced by the Black community as they relate to the legal system. Launching various initiatives to promote increased representation of Black students in law schools and assist in facilitating their success are a priority. We are proud to provide opportunities for formal and informal discussions about many subjects including legal policy issues, effective career strategies, evolutions in substantive law and access to justice for marginalized groups.

We reflect the diversity of the Black/African experience and welcome allies from all backgrounds who also seek to make a meaningful contribution to the furtherance of justice.
