Latinx Law Students Association (LLSA)

Latinx Law Students Association (LLSA) was originally founded in the late 1960s as La Raza de Loyola. In 2022, La Raza changed its name to LLSA to more accurately reflect the law school's Latinx demographic. Among its objectives: to increase the number of lawyers willing to work with the Latinx community during law school and upon graduation; to serve as a support network for Latinx law students on campus; and to serve as an academic resource to help the retention and success of Latinx law students. LLSA's activities include speaking events that bring to the forefront the issues facing the Latinx community and Raza Grad, an additional graduation ceremony infused with our culture and traditions.

Centered in the predominantly Latinx neighborhood of Pico Union, LLSA actively advocates for Latinx educational and social issues on campus and in the surrounding neighborhood.
