The Native American Law Student Association (NALSA) welcomes all students interested in the study of Native American law and Indigenous Peoples issues generally. Through NALSA, students obtain and promote a greater understanding of indigenous values and perspectives within the law school community, support the recruitment and retention of Native American students, and organize networking opportunities with scholars, alumni and practitioners in the field.
OU NALSA is an active student organization that provides a community for future Indian law practitioners and arranges several social and enrichment activities each year. Annually, NALSA members compete in the National NALSA Moot Court Competition and attend the Federal Bar Association’s Indian Law Conference. NALSA students also fundraise to support those activities and organize charitable events, for example, collecting toys and school supplies for local Native American children.
NALSA provides not only the opportunity to learn more about Indian law and culture but also opens the door to networking opportunities with legal professionals in the Native American community. In addition, NALSA is committed to service-oriented projects where you will have the opportunity to help make a positive influence in the community.
