Stetson University College of Law’s Black Law Students Association was named “Chapter of the Year” for the Southern Region for community activism.
The Stetson student group was selected from a pool of 43 law school chapters in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
The students were honored during the Southern Regional BLSA Convention in Nashville.
BLSA students at Stetson regularly participate in community events to advance social justice, including mentoring Boca Ciega High School students through the BLSA Drive to Strive Program and volunteering to assist people seeking petitions to restore their voting rights. The students participate in St. Petersburg’s Community Law Fest and play an integral role in educating community members about accessible legal resources.
