University of Arizona Native American Law Students Association

For the 2020–21 academic year, the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy (IPLP) Program's student body and members of the University of Arizona Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) comprise Native American and Indigenous students from Indigenous nations across the world, and non-Native students, forming a close knit learning community of advocates. The University of Arizona NALSA chapter is consistently one of the largest chapters in the country.

NALSA is close group of law students, faculty, and staff that come together for one purpose: to increase awareness about Native and Indigenous peoples in the James E. Rogers College of Law community and provide education on the legal issues that impact them today. NALSA is made up of Native American, Indigenous, and non-Native members and welcomes anyone who has an interest in learning more about how the law affects tribes, individual Native Americans, and Indigenous people all over the world.

Currently, IPLP students and NALSA members are from the following Indigenous and tribal nations:

Tohono O'odham, Pascua Yaqui, Diné, Cherokee, Colville, Omaha, Wiradjuri, L'nu, Choctaw Nation, Cowlitz, Lumbee, Washoe Tribe, Muscogee Creek, Chickasaw, Anishnaabe, Maasai, Zezuru, Izon (Ijaw) tribe of Nigeria, Native Hawaiian, Ak-Chin Indian Community, Gila River Indian Community, and the Nisqually Indian Nation.

NALSA Events

The University of Arizona NALSA chapter increases awareness about Native American and Indigenous peoples within the university community in a multitude of ways. Throughout the school year, NALSA organizes events featuring tribal leaders and community activists to increase cultural awareness across campus, hosts college preview days for community college and high school students, conducts fundraisers to bring awareness to Indigenous People's Day, and provides volunteer and internship opportunities to law students interested in working with local Native communities.
