The GLSA ("Graduate Law Students Association") is a student-led organization at Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. The GLSA represents graduate students in the Research Stream, which includes LLM ("Master of Laws") and PhD students. Elected members are involved in many committees across the university that affect us and our future colleagues. We also put on events that foster intellectual community.

We hold elections for the positions of GLSA Chair and Conference Chair in April. Elections for all other executive (e.g., Treasurer, Secretary) and committee positions are held in September. Our current committee (2021-2022) is as follows:
