BLSA Chapter at UConn Law Wins National Recognition

The Black Law Students Association at the UConn School of Law has been named a National Chapter of the Year for 2021, recognizing the events and community service its members carried out in a time upended by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am so proud of this group and the work we did this year,” said Dorianne Salmon, the chapter’s president. “Every member spent personal time volunteering and giving back to the community.”

The UConn Law organization shares the national honor with BLSA chapters at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and the Fordham University School of Law. In addition to the national win, the UConn Law chapter was recognized as the Northeast Regional small chapter of the year.
