The Minority Law Students Alliance's (MLSA) purpose is to act as a unified body to foster support of events, initiatives and programs among the groups within MLSA through resource pooling and intellectual discourse; to further its members' academic enrichment and success; to increase the Cardozo community's awareness of general legal issues that affect minority students in the United States and abroad; to collectively engage in community service events and promote minority student recruitment; and to ensure that graduates and current members remain connected through BALLSA's alumni network and annual alumni reception.
