South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA)
The St. John’s South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) at St. John's School of Law addresses the cultural, social, and professional needs of the growing population of students of South Asian descent, and promotes an understanding and awareness of political and social issues affecting the South Asian American community.
SALSA works with other culturally based organizations to create a unified multicultural community at the Law School, in addition to communicating with outside South Asian American organizations. We sponsor various educational, cultural and social activities, such as dinners, film screenings, fundraisers for non-profit community organizations and guest speakers addressing legal issues facing the South Asian community.
SALSA makes a concerted effort to provide academic guidance to its members, including upper-level mentors, outlines and elective advice. SALSA encourages all law students to join and participate.
