Mission: The Middle Eastern and North African Law Students Association (MENALSA) strives to foster an empowering community for Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) students at UCLA Law. The MENA identity is inclusive of individuals from diverse backgrounds, representing various ancestries, religions, ethnicities, and identities. MENALSA works to expand MENA representation and develop MENA leadership at UCLA Law and in the larger legal community. MENALSA seeks to promote an understanding of MENA social, legal, and professional issues and to provide a forum for student mentorship by MENA legal professionals. MENALSA works toward these goals through collaboration with legal organizations and community leaders. MENALSA is committed to diversity, inclusion, and amplifying underrepresented voices on the UCLA campus.
