The North American South Asian Law Student Association (NASALSA) is an organization dedicated to creating a strong network and community among South Asian law students and legal professionals throughout the U.S. and Canada.
NASALSA promotes education, leadership and community service amongst South Asian law students as well as expanding the general legal community’s understanding and appreciation of South Asian political, legal and social issues. As an umbrella organization, NASALSA supports groups aimed towards South Asian law students across North America in hopes of providing those interested in South Asia and the South Asian experience a space to gather together, create support networks, and form communities that will last a lifetime.
