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.

Now it is time to pivot and ask, where are your extraordinary gifts needed? How do you make this legal world that you are entering a better world? One where no one is shut out; one where the weak and vulnerable are not exploited; one that produces fair results based on the merits of the issues before it.”
