The mission of the BLSA is to utilize the collective resources of chapter members to promote the educational, professional, political and social needs and goals of black law students; foster and encourage professional competence; and influence the legal community by bringing about meaningful legal and political change that addresses the black community.

The BLSA serves to help ease the transition of first-year law students into the law school process.

The BLSA is open to any Hofstra Law student regardless of race or color.
