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!
