APALSA serves as an academic, social and political resource for students in the Law School. In recent years, APALSA has made itself increasingly visible to the administration and has strengthened its voice in efforts to redefine the role of Asian Americans both in the Law School and in the law.

BLSA is a national organization that offers a network of educational support and career guidance for minority law students throughout their law school career. BLSA's mission at Wayne State University is to encourage black academic excellence, promote professional development, and sponsor community outreach.
