The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association is the national association of Asian Pacific American attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students, providing a national network for its members and affiliates. Here is more information from their Web site:
NAPABA advocates for the legal needs and interests of the APA community and represents the interests of over 40,000 attorneys and 50 local APA bar associations, with practice settings ranging from solo practices to large firms, corporations, legal services organizations, non-profit organizations, law schools, and governmental agencies.
Since its inception in 1988, NAPABA has been at the forefront of national and local activities in the areas of civil rights, combating anti-immigrant backlash and hate crimes, increasing the diversity of the federal and state judiciaries, and professional development.
NAPABA monitors legislative developments and judicial appointments, promotes APA political leadership, advocates for equal opportunity in education and the workplace, works to eliminate violence against APAs, and builds coalitions within the legal profession and the community at large. NAPABA also serves as a resource for federal, state, and local agencies, members of Congress and staff, and public service organizations on the APA legal profession, civil rights, and diversity in the courts.
