The Harvard Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) is a student-run organization dedicated to fostering a supportive atmosphere for Native American students at Harvard Law School, and is composed of Native American law students and students interested in issues affecting the Native community. NALSA first and foremost strives to provide a support system for indigenous law students by providing academic support and opportunities as well as social events. NALSA also works to promote campus discourse on Federal Indian and tribal law issues, support student and faculty inquiry into these areas of law, and recruit Native students to HLS.

This year 2019-2020, has been an exciting one for us so far. Our events included:

  • A Native American voting rights presentation with attorneys at the Native American Rights Fund.
  • A talk about the intersection of Federal Indian Law and Environmental Law with Professor Anderson. (Co-Sponsoring with the Environmental Law Society )

We also have some exciting events planned for the rest of the year:

  • An event about the Arctic Refuge Litigation with attorneys from the Native American Rights Fund, Earth Justice, and Trustees for Alaska.

If you have any questions about NALSA, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at nalsa@mail.law.harvard.edu. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
