About

The Black Alumni Association (BAA) was established in 1984 by a group of dedicated WCL graduates. The BAA supports current WCL students through an annual book award and welcome reception for new and returning students. The BAA helps to facilitate connections between the law school and a robust alumni network through events, career networking, and communication.
