WMU-Cooley Student Elected to Board of National Organization

WMU-Cooley Law School student Porscha Brown was elected secretary of the National Black Law Student Association (NBLSA).

“This is a great honor,” noted Christopher A. Lewis, director of enrollment and student services at WMU-Cooley, adding that Brown will represent WMU-Cooley well.

Brown, a second-year law student from Virginia Beach, Va., is pursuing the school’s self-directed track, focusing on transactions.

Brown has been an active participant at WMU-Cooley’s BLSA, has received a humanitarian award from the campus organization, and was a member of the four-student team representing WMU-Cooley at the Midwest BLSA Mock Trial competition in Minneapolis, Minn. She also participated in the NBLSA Nelson Mandela International Negotiation Competition in Milwaukee, Wis., where she and her competition partner Jeremy Bowie made it to the quarter-finals.

“Becoming the secretary for the 2014-2015 administration is a new challenge for me,” Brown said. “I am constantly pushing myself to do bigger and better things. I have always been the type of person who loves to help others, and being a part of this organization will allow me to help others on a higher level.”

The NBLSA was founded in 1968 by Algernon Johnson Cooper at New York University.
