Welcome! The mission of the Yale Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) is twofold. First, we are dedicated to providing personal, professional, and cultural support to Yale’s Native American law students and fostering a community among all law students who are interested in Indian legal issues. Second, we are committed to educating Yale’s student body about Indian law, tribal sovereignty, and indigenous rights. NALSA is inclusive and welcomes all members of the YLS community.
