Starting a new chapter can be a confusing process. Here are some steps to make the process easier as a new addition to National NALSA.
- Check your Law School’s policy for establishing student organizations. Many Law Schools require a faculty sponsor.
- If you have trouble acquiring a faculty sponsor, contact your Area Representative for help. National NALSA will support you to the fullest by furnishing a letter from the President urging faculty members to support your student organization.
- Waiver: In special circumstances, as determined by the Executive Board, chapters may be eligible for a waiver of chapter dues. In order to apply for a waiver:
- Email your Area Representative explaining the special circumstances that make it impossible for your chapter to pay dues for the year.
- In certain cases, National NALSA may need verification of financial hardship from your Law School’s administration.
