THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LEVIN COLLEGE OF LAW Black Law Students Association — AKA the W. George Allen chapter — was recognized as the national chapter of the year at the annual National Black Law Students Association Convention in Atlanta. “This award shows yet again that UF is among the top law schools in the country, and that UF’s excellence is consistent in many areas,” said BLSA President Brandon Campbell, second from the right. At the convention, Campbell highlighted all of the community service outreach that BLSA spearheaded, including the state of the Black Law Student town hall meeting; diversity initiatives with pre-law students across the country; the 50-year anniversary celebration of W. George Allen, UF Law’s first black graduate and UF BLSA’s namesake; and a professionalism week program. “The leadership of our UF Law BLSA chapter has been superb these past years, so the chapter being recognized as the national chapter of the year is a well-deserved and exciting honor,” said UF Law Dean Robert Jerry.
