The mission of the Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA) is threefold: to promote unity and joint action, to promote friendly relations between Muslims and the UDM law community, and to endeavor to increase understanding of the religion of Islam and Muslims. To achieve our mission, we conduct social and cultural events on campus. We also promote off-campus religious activities, create networking opportunities with the local diverse legal community, coordinate with local Islamic organizations, and volunteer for various local organizations.
