About SALSA


The South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA) provides those interested in South Asian culture at Yale Law School a space to gather, create support networks, and form communities. We hope to instill awareness of the role of law students as future leaders who understand, care about, and support the history and concerns of the South Asian community.

SALSA frequently joins together with other affinity groups at the law school and other Yale South Asian organizations to host speakers and cultural events.

To get involved, please contact salsa@yale.edu.

We would like to thank our 2015–2016 SALSA Sponsors:
Debevoise & Plimpton
Paul, Weiss

Student Organizations


The list of student organizations changes every year, based on the activities and interests of current students. The Law School provides a budget, shared storage space, and administrative resources to approved student organizations.

We, as lawyers, can be builders too. We can use our tools to build a society in which every member of the new generation can celebrate her graduation –not only with joy but with well-founded hope for the future.”
