Jewish Law Student Association (JLSA)
President: Manny Halberstam [email]
JLSA brings Jewish law students together both socially and intellectually. JLSA sponsors a number of social events in conjunction with other area law schools, including Georgetown and American Universities, and arranges for speakers to visit the Law School to discuss Jewish–American legal concerns on current political issues. JLSA also provides information regarding the celebration of Jewish holidays in D.C. and Jewish events around town. JLSA works with the GW Hillel, which shares many resources, activities, and programming ideas. The Hillel is also the location of the nearest kosher restaurant and functions as a food co-op for kosher meat and other products. JLSA is a member of the National Law Students Network, which links Jewish law students throughout the nation and promotes Jewish awareness and education.
