ALLS - Arts & Literature Law Society
   
 
  History

ALLS was founded in September 2004 by a group of students around Roger Pao, Heinrich Schweizer, and Abe Zubarev. Spurred on by the inspirational Professor Harry S. Martin and much interest from students and professionals on and off campus, the organization's impact was immediately felt. It has since become one of the largest and most active student groups at HLS.
