Harvard BLSA History

The Harvard Black Law Students Association (HBLSA) was founded in 1967. Today, HBLSA has grown to become the largest chapter in the National Black Law Students Association. Counting over 160 members annually, HBLSA reflects the strong Black community that is so integral to the diversity of Harvard Law School.

Harvard BLSA’s traditional events include our Welcome Trip to Martha’s Vineyard, the school-wide December 1L Job Fair, the formal Black & White Ball, and our legendary Spring Conference. BLSA also co-sponsors a number of events with other student groups, fostering a sense of community at the law school.
