Student Organizations

Women Law Students Association (WLSA)

The purpose of the Women Law Students Association (WLSA) is to promote the role of women in the legal profession, to help provide mutual support and encouragement to its members, and to engage in activities that enhance the role of women in society.

As one of the largest student organizations on campus, the Women Law Students Association works to achieve this goal by organizing two separate mentorship programs: a student-to-student mentorship program and an attorney-to-student mentorship program. WLSA also holds an annual silent auction to benefit a local non-profit with funds earmarked to assist with women’s legal issues within the community.

Throughout the year, WLSA hosts numerous events, including but not limited to:

  • Speaker panels (diverse legal career panel, summer internship experience panel, etc.)
  • Female faculty luncheon
  • Dinner with the Dean
  • Tea with female justices
  • Halloween party hosted at a youth domestic violence shelter
  • Female law student reception at a local firm
  • Wine and cheese night with the Arizona Women Lawyers Association
