Native American Law Students Association (NALSA)
NALSA has two primary purposes at Stanford Law School. The first is to address issues of concern to Native Americans and to help the faculty and administration consider these concerns when they make decisions about curriculum and other academic matters. To this end, NALSA has over the years brought speakers to Stanford to address current issues in Indian Law. NALSA's second purpose is to bring students of diverse social and tribal backgrounds together for events such as the annual Stanford Powwow, occasional social events, and bi-weekly meetings.
NALSA has become involved in recruiting Native American students to Stanford by working with the other students-of-color organizations to coordinate the Law School's Minority Admit Weekend and increase the diversity of the Law School's student and faculty population.
