NBLSA’s Five-Point Advocacy Plan
NBLSA’s Five-Point Advocacy Plan encompasses the following issues that the organization is dedicated to advocating for throughout the year: Education, Elections & Voting, Criminal Justice, Environmental Justice, and Rapid Response. With the consistency of this plan, members are more aware of advocacy issues during their law school career.
Please contact NBLSA’s 2015-2016 Attorney General, Thais Ridgeway, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved in this year’s initiatives or for further information.
Upcoming Advocacy Projects
Fisher v. Texas
NBLSA’s 2015 Amicus Curiae Brief is Coming Soon!
NBLSA will soon submit a 2015 amicus curia brief to continue in the advocacy path set out in 2012 regarding the monumental Fisher v. Texas case.
In 2012, NBLSA submitted a brief as amicus curiae in support of Respondents in Fisher v. Texas, urging the Supreme Court to affirm the ruling of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, upholding the race-conscious admissions policy of the University of Texas at Austin.
