The purpose of the Cornell Law School's Native American Law Student Association (NALSA) shall be to: articulate and promote the professional needs and goals of Native Law Students and their allies; foster and encourage professional competence; focus upon the relationship of the Native American Law Student, the Native American Attorney and their allies to the American legal structure; instill in every attorney and Law Student a greater awareness and commitment to the needs of the Native American community; influence the legal community to bring about meaningful change to meet the needs of the Native American community; adopt and implement a policy of economic independence; encourage law students to pursue careers in the judiciary; and do all things necessary and appropriate to accomplish these purposes.
Cornell Law School is a small, top-tier law school located in Myron Taylor Hall. We enroll only 195-199 JD students and 60-70 graduate LL.M. students each year to ensure that we maintain a close-knit academic environment. CLS students not only benefit from our small class size but also from one of the lowest student to faculty ratios in legal education.
We encourage you to visit the Law School's website at http://www.lawschool.cornell.edu/
