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.
APABA Silicon Valley is partnering with the California Bar Foundation to award a cash scholarship totaling $5,000, which includes California bar exam-related support. APABA Silicon Valley is specifically looking to award the “3L Diversity Scholarship” in recognition of a law student in the Bay Area who (1) has demonstrated a commitment to Asian Pacific American communities in the Silicon Valley, (2) has an interest to continue practicing law and serving Asian Pacific American communities in the Silicon Valley after graduation, and (3) is an active member of or plans to become an active member of APABA-SV. Applicants must be 3Ls who intend to take the California Bar Exam in 2018 and want to pursue a public interest career and have demonstrated a commitment to social justice.
The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley (“APABA Silicon Valley”) is now accepting submissions from those interested in serving in 2018 as an Officer, Board Member, Committee Co-Chair, or Committee Member.
The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley is proud to announce its 2017 Diversity Award recipients, who will be celebrated at APABA Silicon Valley’s 32nd Annual Awards Gala at Levi’s Stadium on Friday, October 13, 2017.
