MetroLALSA, Inc. has a unique structure.  This organization consists of a Board of Directors, Management (i.e., the executive board), and delegates.

The Board of Directors oversee the organization.  The board positions are held by experienced professionals.  While not a requirement, the board members are alumni of MetroLALSA.  

The organization, however, is led by students -- the executive board.  The eboard handles the day to day operations and carries out the MetroLALSA mission.  

The eboard and board members obtain their positions from the vote of the delegates.  The delegates are the representatives of the MetroLALSA member law schools.  This democratic system ensures transparency and accountability.

With that said, meet the team that makes things happen.
