NNALSA was founded in 1970 to promote the study and development of Federal Indian Law, Tribal Law, and traditional forms of governance. Additionally, NNALSA supports Native Americans in law school, both in their own personal academic and life achievements, and in their efforts to educate their peers and communities about Indian law issues.
National Native American Law Students Association
The National Native American Law Students Association (NNALSA) was founded in 1970 to support law students who are interested in the study of Federal Indian Law, Tribal Law, and traditional forms of governance. Through NNALSA, we increase the Native American law student population and promote indigenous legal issues that affect Native communities. We encourage Native Americans to pursue a legal education and advocate for tribal communities.
