New Pre-Law Chapter of National Black Law Students Association

Illinois pre-law students now have the opportunity to participate in a new pre-law student organization. We are sharing this information for all interested Illini.

Still searching for the perfect law related, extracurricular activity? Looking to get more involved on campus? Your search is over, as a Pre-Law Chapter of the National Black Law Students Association has been chartered on campus! Students who become members of NBLSA’s Pre-Law Division will join the membership of a prestigious organization that continues to culturally transform the legal community.

As a member of the Pre-Law Division, you gain access to irreplaceable resources, invaluable networking opportunities, as well as exceptional mentorship. This year, we hope to provide our members with the tools necessary to make law school dreams a reality—from LSAT prep to First Year Success, and everything in between. Membership also makes you eligible for NBLSA scholarships, fellowships, conventions and programs. This year, Pre-Law members will also have the opportunity to participate in advocacy competitions, such as the Frederick Douglass Moot Court Competition, the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition and the NBLSA Nelson Mandela International Negotiations Competition.
