The Latin American Law Students Association (LALSA) works to build ties with the Latino legal community, providing current students with information about internships, job fairs, firm receptions, and networking opportunities. The association also reaches out to the general Latino community.
Throughout the year, executive board members email students with opportunities, panels, networking receptions, and articles of interest. Through the group's social events, mentor programs and co-sponsorships, it seeks to become an influential part of the Cardozo community. At Thanksgiving, LALSA hosts a pot-luck dinner at the school. In the spring, the group throws a large "Fiesta" event. In recent years, Fiesta featured a live salsa band, capoeira dancing, and Latin American and Caribbean food. LALSA also sponsors out-of-school social events, such as salsa nights and jazz club outings.
