Indigenous Law Students Association (ILSA)

The Indigenous Law Student Association (ILSA) acknowledges the need to promote the study and development of Indigenous law and systems of governance.   

ILSA's goals are to: (1) educate the Syracuse University community about legal issues affecting Indigenous nations located within the United States; (2) provide a forum for the discussion of Indigenous legal rights and contemporary issues; (3) encourage interaction with local Indigenous nations; (4) provide a community for law students at the Syracuse University College of Law with interests in Indigenous law or traditional Indigenous governments; (5) create networking opportunities with scholars, alumni, attorneys, and guest speakers within the local, national, and international Indigenous legal field; and (6) work toward the recruitment and retaining of Native American law students.

ILSA is a chapter member of the National Native American Law Students Association (NNALSA) and will participate in National NALSA annual events, including: the Moot Court Competition, the Writing Competition, and the Annual Meeting and Federal Bar Association Indian Law Conference.
