Massachusetts School of Law’s Black Law Students Association is a chapter of NBLSA (National Black Law Students Association), and aims to address the particular needs of minority law students and to provide law-related services to greater Boston minority communities.

BLSA sponsors bake sales, ice cream socials, car washes, community service, and other activities to further its mission. Membership in BLSA is open to all students, as allyship is a core paradigm of the various student organizations.

One of the key events BLSA sponsors is the Intersectionality Panel, which educates the MSLAW community on the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, equality and the legal field. The last Intersectionality Panel was hosted by Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General, April English, and panelists included Hon. Pamela Dashiel, First Justice South Boston Court; Mason Dunn, LGBTQ+ activist and attorney; and Douglas Martin, former President of the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association and current MSLAW Trustee.
