The International Law Students Association (ILSA) serves as an umbrella organization for its member chapters at individual law schools. Chapters exist as independent entities as well as members of the larger Association. ILSA’s structure grants autonomy to its Chapters to meet their unique needs locally while making available to them an international network of pooled academic and organizational resources.
The Massachusetts School of Law International Law Students Association (MSL-ILSA) Chapter’s purpose and mission is to promote the study of international law on campus, within the MSLAW community, and to foster the growth of educational and career opportunities for students, alumni, and faculty who are interested in international law.
Massachusetts School of Law's mission is to provide an academically rigorous affordable legal education emphasizing ethics, advocacy, leadership, and professional skills. MSLAW provides an accessible and affordable legal education to tomorrow’s leaders in law, business, and technology who seek to contribute to their communities as advocates, lawyers, and leaders. Lawyers have substantial influence in our society and MSLAW prepares its graduates to use that power to help their clients and obtain the societal advancement that a law degree has traditionally provided.
To accomplish its mission, Massachusetts School of Law brings together a diverse group of scholars, judges, expert practitioners and other professionals to provide individuals from all backgrounds a rigorous, professionally advantageous, affordable legal education so that they can improve their lives and better serve their communities.
