On behalf of the entire SCCLA Family we are honored and blessed by your continued support of SCCLA and our Mission:
“[to] provide mutual support for Chinese and Asian American lawyers, jurists and law students in Los Angeles and Orange Counties."
Our goals are:
· To advance the professional growth and interests of Chinese and Asian American lawyers, jurists and law students;
· To improve the access of the Chinese and Asian American community to legal services; and
· To promote the interests of the Chinese American and broader Asian Pacific American communities.
Over the past 37 years, SCCLA has tirelessly advocated for, defended and helped advance ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic diversity goals in the legal profession. In addition, SCCLA has promoted equal access to justice for the APA Community through a monthly Pro bono Legal Clinic. These efforts have been led by past SCCLA Presidents, the Board, Members, and supporters who make up the SCCLA Family.
In the upcoming year, SCCLA looks forward to strengthening our bonds with our fellow APA Bar Associations and Community Partners to ensure that we are providing the best programs and resources to our members and our community. Most importantly, we will continue to provide leadership to the Bar by continuing mentorship programs for new lawyers, law and high school students.
As the incoming president, I have been asked on numerous occasions if I am nervous in taking over the role of SCCLA President. My reply is a simple “no” -- I say so because SCCLA has the best Board of Governors and Officers guiding the way. Each member of the Board of Governors dedicates countless hours organizing and volunteering at legal clinics, Networking Mixers, MCLE and mentoring programs. Working together as the “SCCLA Board” I am confident we will add another successful chapter to the proud SCCLA history.
SCCLA President, 2012-2013
