Hispanic Law Student Association

The Hispanic Law Students Association (HLSA) aims to provide diversity in the legal system as well as support and educational services to all Loyola Law Students. Our main objective is to inform students of contemporary legal issues affecting the Hispanic community, encourage students to become involved in the legal community in Louisiana, and promote Hispanic heritage and culture. Some of our activities include social events, networking opportunities, speakers, panels to discuss career paths, a mentoring program, and community service projects. All students are welcomed to join HLSA.
