On November 7-11, 2018, twenty OAPABA members attended the 2018 NAPABA Convention in Chicago celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The Convention was attended by approximately 2,000 Asian Pacific American (APA) attorneys, judges, law students, legal scholars, and elected officials from around the country.  OAPABA members were proud to celebrate the Honorable Mustafa T. Kasubhai, the recipient of the Daniel K. Inouye Trailblazer Award, and the law firm Gonzales, Gonzales & Gonzales Immigration Law Offices, the recipient of the APA-Owned Law Firm Award.

We are also pleased to announce that Amanda Haines from Lewis & Clark Law School was inducted as president of the student chapter, NAPALSA, and James McQuire from University of Oregon School of Law was inducted to serve as the NAPALSA conference co-chair.  Congratulations to our OAPABA student members!

OAPABA’s mission is to educate the public and the legal community about
issues involving minorities, particularly Asian Pacific Americans (“APAs”), within
the legal profession or the justice system and to promote diversity and inclusion
in government, the legal community, and the judicial system. OAPABA further
recognizes the value of its members attending NAPABA events which offer
unique opportunities for APA judges, attorneys, and law students to engage with
legal issues and public policies that affect APA communities nationally.
