Black Law Students Association invites undergrads to “see yourself here” at Robson Hall

March 8, 2023 — 
As she wandered through University Centre one day, early in her first-year of law school, Meseret Alem noticed the diverse student population around her. She asked herself, “If there’s so many Black students in other parts of campus, why isn’t there a similar concentration among law students at Robson Hall?” Very soon after that, together with fellow law students, she resurrected the Manitoba chapter of the Black Law Students’ Association of Canada, became its Co-President, and has been working to organize “See Yourself Here,” a recruiting event for Black students considering careers in law.
