On October 25, 2013, OAPABA members attended the Campaign for Equal Justice’s “Laf-Out” Competition to support former president Simon Whang.
On October 19, 2013, OAPABA co-hosted with former board member Miyuki Yoshida its second annual museum event at the Portland Art Museum and saw the Samurai! Armour exhibit from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection. A reception was also held after the event. The museum and reception event at West Cafe was attended by a good number of University of Oregon and Willamette students visiting from Eugene and Salem, Oregon. OAPABA thanks Miyuki for helping organize the event and for providing 30 law students with free admission to the museum.
On September 7, 2013, OAPABA sponsored its second annual Lane County Social, hosted by members Becky Kamitsuka of the U.S. Trustee’s Office and board member/Lane County Circuit Court Judge Mustafa Kasubhai. The picnic boasted over 100 attendees (an increase from last year), including prominent federal and state court judges and attorneys. Other members from the Portland Metro and Willamette Valley also attended, which allowed members across the state to meet and become more involved within our organization. OAPABA thanks Judge Carlson and Becky Kamitsuka for hosting another successful event!
