Law Students' Association
The LSA is a student-run organization that provides law students with various kinds of support while at the University of Saskatchewan. Although membership is voluntary, the LSA operates on a break-even basis and memberships help cover all costs involved in providing services and events. The LSA provides academic liaisons with faculty, and coordinates many social functions and athletic activities.
Indigenous Law Students Association (ILSA)
The Indigenous Law Students Association (ILSA) is a student-run organization that fosters a community of academic, professional, and social support among Indigenous students in the College of Law. ILSA represents and supports the interests of Indigenous students and promotes appropriate legal education for Indigenous people in a culturally sensitive learning environment.

ILSA works alongside the LSA to provide services, events, and social functions for all law students.
