Second-year student Natasha Banks has been elected as the southern region’s Vice-Chair of the National Black Law Students Association. The southern region consists of nine states and Puerto Rico, and Banks will co-manage its Executive Board alongside the Regional Chair. The board provides NBLSA chapters with programmatic direction, supports chapter activities, and functions as a conduit between chapters and the national organization. She will be sworn in at the NBLSA’s National Conference in March, and take office on April 1.
The National Black Law Students Association, which was formed in 1968, encourages the development of talented, socially conscious lawyers through tradition, academic excellence, national impact, a global legal perspective, and diverse experiences, perspectives, and opinions.
