Learn more about our organization
From its humble roots in 2002, the Asian Law Students’ Associations (ALSA) has risen to become one of the largest law students’ associations in the world. Reaching over 9,000 members in over 17 jurisdictions, it has become the premier representative body of law students in Asia. At the international level, ALSA is regulated by the laws of Association of the Swiss Civil Code Articles 60 to 79, and is thus legitimized under the written law as having its international seat in Zurich, Switzerland.
With law students from National Chapters of Brunei, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Macau, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam as members of ALSA, and, Nepal and Bangladesh as our Observers; ALSA consisted of passionate, hard – working and determined aspiring lawyers.
Indeed, ALSA operates with the aim to provide our members with understanding of the law in different jurisdictions, along with the appreciation of the diversity and languages present in our continent. More importantly, we strive to motivate law students to develop a creative spirit and be internationally minded through a network of joined activities among Asian law students.
My vision for this term is “Strong Inside and Leading Outside”. My vision stamps from the famous Maori tribe of New Zealand Motto, this vision is an aspiration that the community or the family, in this case, ALSA is strength and then the expansion happens. to illustrate further strong inside includes effort likes NB and LC development, bridging the gap between more marginalized NC with the active one, ensuring that the IB and its alliances are taken care of. When the community is strong inside, that’s when we start to lead outside and spread our wings.

INTRODUCTION TO ALSA
Formally established in 2002, the association is a merger between the previous ASEAN law students association, as well as the East Asian law students association, which were two student bodies that had similar goals of fostering stronger ties and greater understanding of the different legal systems among its member Asian countries. Recognizing their common goals, as well as the ever increasing onset of globalization in the region, these two associations signed an agreement in 2002, thus forming ALSA into the organization that is known to be today.
