About Us

The Muslim Law Students Association seeks to connect Muslim students and allies, advocate for the particular needs of our community at the Law School, and provide relevant programming on justice-related issues affecting Muslim communities locally, nationally, and globally. We are a diverse group of law students from all walks of life and with varied professional interests. We hope to build with you throughout your time at CLS and help make your law school experience one of mutual support, growth, and fun!


In addition to connecting with various affinity groups at Columbia Law School and other Muslim groups at Columbia University, we also seek to build partnerships with MLSAs at other law schools in the region and professional associations like the Muslim Bar Association of New York (MuBANY), the Association of American Muslim Lawyers, and the American Muslim Bar Association. Please follow us on instagram @columbia.law.muslims and email us at mlsa@law.columbia.edu to join our GroupMe chat, learn about our events, mentorship pairings, and other available resources.
