Formed over thirty years ago, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley ("APABA-SV") is a forum for Asian Pacific American attorneys in the Silicon Valley to network, develop professional skills, participate in community service, take positions on issues affecting the APA community, and empower APAs in the Valley. APA attorneys in the Silicon Valley play a critical role in enriching our legal and civic communities by practicing in every legal field - law firms of all sizes, large and small corporations, academia, government, courts, legislature, and public interest.
Each year, APABA Silicon Valley awards Scholarships to law students throughout the San Francisco bay area. The purpose of our scholarships is to recognize law students who have demonstrated leadership and service to the Asian Pacific American community, who have overcome personal hardships or challenges, or shown excellence and achievement in law school. Importantly, our scholarships are designed to help these students give back to the APA community. We are thrilled to have seen past recipients devote their careers to that very purpose.
