Mission: Law Student Alliance for Israel (AFI) is a community where students with an interest in Israel, the Middle East, and the practice of law in Israel come together and share ideas, exchange information, and learn from each others’ experiences. AFI aims to promote education about Israeli law and society, and an open and respectful dialogue amongst the UCLA School of Law student body about issues affecting Israel and the Middle East. To that end, AFI hosts educational, professional, and social and cultural events at the law school, including speakers and guests of all ideologies within the enormous Israeli spectrum. AFI also plans and executes several long-term initiatives to encourage our students to work in or with Israel, support our Israeli student population at UCLA, and otherwise counter any negative influences. AFI is an inclusive group and we are eager to build a diverse membership and add new perspectives, experiences, and voices to our group.
