Each year Asian Pacific American law students from leading Bay Area law schools have collaboratively organized a conference called the Bay Area Asian Pacific American Law Student Association (BAAPALSA) Conference. The inaugural BAAPALSA Conference – Building Bridges – was held in 2001. Now in its fourteenth year, the BAAPALSA Conference has grown into the largest West Coast forum for Asian American law students as well as practitioners with over 250 attendees annually.
Conference goals include (1) cultivating socially conscious APA lawyers; (2) presenting a variety of future career options; and (3) fostering a sense of community and support among APA lawyers and law students.
The BAAPALSA Conference plays an integral role in allowing practitioners, students, and the entire APA community to learn from our successes, re-evaluate shortcomings, and discover what motivates and inspires us. Together we can find new causes and leaders to rally behind in an increasingly interrelated and connected world. We would greatly appreciate your support as we plan this year’s conference – Towards the Future – at UC Davis School of Law on January 25, 2013.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
