Organizational Overview

The National Latina/o Law Student Association (NLLSA) is a progressive, collective organization of law school chapters from all regions of the United States. These chapters assemble annually every fall at the National Latina/o Law Student Conference. At this conference, one delegate representing each chapter elects fellow students to hold offices of the National Executive Board. The NLLSA Board is comprised of nine National Board Members and seven Regional Directors who agree to uphold and carry out their duties as described in NLLSA’s Constitution.


Chapter Enrollment and Membership

Any chapter established at a law school, including non-ABA accredited law schools, may apply for membership by completing the attached application. Upon receipt of the application, the Executive Board will approve the chapter for admittance. The chapter will also have its name listed on the NLLSA website as an official NLLSA Chapter.


Once admitted, a chapter will have the opportunity to select one delegate to vote on its behalf at NLLSA Elections Meeting held at the National Conference.

Each chapter may select its delegate in any manner it wishes. However, the name of the delegate must be sent to NLLSA’s Chair (chair@nllsa.org) and Public Relations Director (publicrelations@nllsa.org) each year. The delegate is responsible for appearing at the NLLSA Elections Meeting during the Conference and presenting his/her student identification card from his/her respective law school prior to voting.

Voting Rights

 

Upon membership, each chapter agrees to:

  • Implement and maintain student recruitment and retention programs.
  • Inform the Regional Director and Public Relations Director of the chapter’s events.
  • Establish and maintain an alumni network.
  • Work with its law school’s administration to seek and retain Latino candidates in teaching positions and advocate for the tenure of professors who support law students of color.
