Each year, Africa Summit sends ten to fifteen BLSA representatives to select countries of the African Diaspora. Past trips have included Ghana, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Rwanda, Namibia, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. The trip expands BLSA’s community and develops ties to the larger African legal, political, and humanitarian aid communities. While abroad, students have visited and engaged in cultural exchanges with local law schools, the US Embassies, High Court judges, Attorney generals, Human Rights organizations, and local community service groups and orphanages.
