About BLSA

Our History:

Shortly after the Legal Studies major was launched in 1980, a group of enterprising Legal Studies students formed The Undergraduate Legal Studies Association (TULSA). The group gave the Legal Studies students an opportunity to be more involved in the undergraduate experience at Cal. The group went dormant during the 2003-2004 school year and now, after its revival, the staff gave TULSA a face-lift! The 2004-2005 staff not only changed the name to Berkeley Legal Studies Association (BLSA) but we are also now accepting all members of the Cal community in BLSA.

About us:

The Berkeley Legal Studies Association is a pre-law organization affiliated with the Legal Studies Department, but open to ALL STUDENTS interested in pursuing a career in the law. You don’t have to be a Legal Studies major to join!

We have a lot of events scheduled for this academic year and we hope that you will find them valuable and resourceful. Some of our events for the semester include LSAT workshops with popular test preparation companies, lunches with Legal Studies professors, speaker panels, The Living Catalogue, and many, many other important, enjoying, and interesting opportunities!

We hope that you will join the club and enjoy the friendly and intellectual environment that we are committed to provide! Please feel free to email us at blsalaw@gmail.com with any questions you may have or if you want more information on how to join!
