Prospective Students

If you are looking for a law school that combines a world class faculty, dynamic but easygoing students, and without question the most beautiful and finest city in America, then you will have access to all of this and more at the University of San Diego School of Law. 

Regardless of where you go, law school is a demanding and puzzling process that equally tests your resolve and your intellect. However, USD's Black Law Students Association takes great pride in fostering a community where students share the knowledge and resources necessary to be successful academically and be prepared for the real world.

USD's BLSA works to create a supportive community for our self-identified black students and others concerned with equality and justice. BLSA provides incoming students with mentorship, academic assistance to prepare for classes, and help understanding the university's culture and the city at-large. Additionally, BLSA participates in a number of activities both for the student and legal community, including an Annual Judicial Panel, Spoken Word Events, 1L Welcome Reception, and much more.  In fact, USD's BLSA was awarded student organization of the year for 2016-2017!
