Legal Studies Association - About the Organization

Membership Dues

Any student can become a member of the Legal Studies Association (LSA). We welcome all Legal Studies majors, as well as other students who share interests in law related topics including legal advocacy, court administration, policing, and investigation. Annual dues are $30/year or $20/semester. Dues cover expenses not covered by ASM allocations, such as meeting refreshments, senior banquet and publicity. 

Meetings 

Meetings are Wednesday nights, 7:00-8:00 p.m. in Grainger Hall. Check Today at UW or the LSA Facebook page for room information.

Mission Statement 

The mission of the LSA is to promote the professional and social development of students interested in law related careers through educational and social experiences with other students, academic professionals, and community leaders. 

Activities and Speakers 

LSA hosts a variety of professionals from the local and state level. These speakers represent diverse experiences and professions in the criminal justice and legal arenas. Previous speakers have included FBI and Secret Service agents, police officers, attorneys, judges, and law school admissions representatives. LSA provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the intricacies of various law related careers and how to obtain the necessary training and qualifications. It is also an excellent way to narrow and refine job searches and professional interests. 

Social/Professional 

In today's competitive job market, it is essential to develop a personal network. The personal network that can be developed through participation in LSA has led many students to internships and employment connections. 

Officers 

Check the LSA Facebook page for current officers.

For a more rewarding and worthwhile experience, members are encouraged to become involved with a leadership position. Members who do not hold an office are encouraged to correspond with officers regarding activities and speakers in which they are interested.
