The Black Law Students' Association of Saskatchewan is committed to supporting and enhancing academic and professional opportunities for Black law students. We are concerned with challenges faced by the Black community as they relate to the legal system. We want to promote increased representation of Black students in law schools and assist in facilitating their success.
We reflect the diversity of the African/Black/Caribbean experience and welcome allies from all backgrounds who also seek to make a meaningful contribution to the furtherance of justice.
Our mandate, in association with the National Black Law Students' of Canada, is to create a strong community where Black law students feel they belong, mentorship for the growth and success of the Black legal community, and support for students towards a successful legal career. To that end, we plan on introducing the Julius Alexander Moot and Juanita Westmoreland-Traoré Negotiation competition to our College of Law. BLSA Saskatchewan Students are also invited to the Annual National Conference and Civil Law Symposium!

The Caveat Lector exists to be redundant. It also exists to publish and make available information and creative works from law students for law students, all while maintaining a standard of journalistic integrity. Well, maybe not integrity, but something close.

Runnymede Society takes its name from a meadow by the Thames River where the Magna Carta, a document guaranteeing certain individual liberties against state power, was signed by King John in 1215. Today, the Magna Carta is considered to have laid the foundation for Constitutionalism, and serves as a symbol for liberty and the Rule of Law.
We are a national organization with affiliated chapters in various law schools and law firms. Our members include law students, legal scholars, practicing lawyers, judicial clerks, and more. Our guiding principles are (1) Constitutionalism: the Canadian Constitution is the supreme law, from which all government power must derive and be limited by; (2) Freedom: certain fundamental liberties are guaranteed by the Canadian Constitution, and are of paramount importance; (3) The Rule of Law: all people, institutions, and government bodies must be subject to the same laws. No one is above the law; (4) We seek to foster intellectual diversity and good faith dialogue within our law school.
