The Otago Asian Law Students’ Association (OALSA) is a student-elected body that promotes the interests of Asian-identifying law students. We encourage students with any connection to Asia to join, whether that be a connection to Lebanon in the West, Korea in the East, or Sri Lanka in the South. Asia is a diverse continent and we aspire for OALSA to reflect that.
OALSA aims to promote our broad values of community and inclusion, pride and advocacy by providing a support network for our members, whether this be academic, social, or welfare related. We offer a mentoring programme for our first- and second-year students to connect with senior Asian students. We raise awareness of Asian culture within the Faculty and advocate on behalf of Asian law students both internally and externally.
If you’re an Asian-identifying law student, we’d love for you to join us as a member!
