The National Native American Law Students Association was founded in 1970 to support law students who are interested in the study of Federal Indian Law, Tribal Law, and traditional forms of governance. Through NNALSA, we increase the Native American law student population and promote indigenous legal issues that affect Native communities. We encourage Native Americans to pursue a legal education and advocate for tribal communities.
