With the Middle East becoming one of the most active and important regions in the world, the need for understanding this region’s continuous development, cultural wealth, interesting history, unique challenges, high potentials, and legal landscape is felt more than ever before. At the Middle Eastern Law Student Association (MELSA), we work hard to expand the understanding of our fellow law students, and promote the discourse regarding these important issues. We actively seek to raise awareness with an unbiased approach, and hope to be a positive and constructive force in this regard. Furthermore, MELSA seeks to advance the understanding of the legal issues related to the American Muslim community, and contribute to the experience of first year law students. Accordingly we work on six projects with each having a specific focus.
