"History Has Its Eyes On Us!"

From the desk of the Chair

Hello SRBLSA Family,

Welcome to the website for the Sophisticated Southern Region of the National Black Law Students Association! This website serves as the centralized place with information on all SRBLSA events for the year, the contact for executive board members as well as any other correspondence.

As black law students, we are uniquely positioned to aid, support, and advocate for our communities in times like these. Every step you take, directive you give, initiative you originate, matters; every single one has the potential to have a generational impact. As you set your eyes to the future and strive to regain normalcy after a year of global panic, social unrest, and domestic terrorism, know that history has its eyes on you.

In its 51st year, the Southern Region will strive to uplift, empower, and encourage each and every one of you. This is our organization, and it is important that you feel the Southern Region is not only meeting the needs of your individual chapters but also helping you achieve your own academic and professional goals. All in hopes that you will feel empowered enough to help fulfill NBLSA’s main objective, which is to increase the number of culturally responsible black and minority attorneys who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.

This is a fundamental time. What we accomplish in this moment will impact many generations to come. Sophisticated Southerners, as our official theme for the upcoming year dictates…

“History Has Its Eyes on Us!”

I want to welcome our new local leadership and encourage our graduating students to stay connected. The 51st Regional Board has a lot in store for the year. We will be working diligently to bring you the opportunities and connections you need to be successful law students and successful attorneys. Join us as we blaze the path towards a better future. On behalf of the 51st Regional
Board, I look forward to working with you over this year and excelling in the legal field together.

If there is anything that you feel could be done to make our region better please feel free to reach out to me at
