The Harvard African Law Association (“HALA”) was formally recognized as a graduate student organization by the Harvard Law School (“HLS”) on November 6, 2001.  The ever-increasing number of continental Africans joining HLS’ student body motivated the establishment of HALA.  Over the last decade, HALA has increased both its membership and scope, serving as a forum in the Harvard community for discussion, celebration, and exploration of all issues Africa-related.
