Pictured above are OU Law BLSA members Marcelo Pendleton-Moreno, Stan West, and Desiree Singer.
OU Law's Black Law Students Association (BLSA) Chapter won both the Regional and National Small Chapter of the Year Award for the 2015-2016 school year. To be eligible for the Small Chapter Award, a chapter must be less than 20 paid members. Among the many factors associated with winning the award, the winning chapter must demonstrate social-political awareness, community service, education, and career development.
"It is an honor and privilege to serve as the president of a BLSA chapter that exhibits the zeal of our national founder Attorney Algernon Johnson (“AJ”) Cooper," said OU Law BLSA President Marcelo Pendleton-Moreno. "The 2015-2016 Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher Chapter stands on the shoulders of the giants that came before it through its commitment to social-political awareness, community service, education, and career development. We are honored to receive the awards of National and Regional Small Chapter of the Year."
Congratulations to the members of the Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher Chapter of the National Black Law Students Association on their success!
