GREETINGS TO YOU ALL
The Asian Law Students Association was established in the year 2002 to enable law students from across the Asian region to network and engage in intellectual pursuits. It gives me great pleasure to write this message as the 21st President of the Asian Law Students Association (ALSA International) for the year 2023/2024.

The key visions of ALSA International entail :
1) Focusing on a global vision on the promising future of Asia;
2) Promoting an awareness of justice and the rule of law across Asia; and

Our Association values diversity and promotes understanding between various legal jurisdictions across Asia and other regions. We serve as a platform, primarily for Asian law students to share the ideals of law and develop a creative and cohesive spirit within the network. We believe this can enhance our capabilities to become global minded, socially responsible, academically committed, and legal skilled which are the four pillars of ALSA International.

ALL ABOUT ALSA
Learn more about our organization
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.
