1.31.15 – Northeastern University School of Law's Black Law Student Association chapter has been named Small Chapter of the Year for the Northeast Region by the Northeast Black Law Student Association (NBLSA) at its 47th national convention. The Northeastern chapter, which goes by the name "Kemet," in reference to the ancient Egyptian word meaning "black people," won out against 32 law schools throughout the New York and New England area and was also recognized by the regional chair for Best Overall Advocacy. 

Represented by co-chair Jonathan Culpepper '16, the Kemet chapter will now compete at the national level against the other small chapter winners from the Southern, Midwest, Rocky Mountain, Western and Mid-Atlantic regions at the National Black Law Students Association's convention, to be held in March in Portland, Oregon. Students from across the nation will gather to perform community service, engage in enriching workshops and participate in advocacy competitions.
