Access to Justice, Professional Development, and Mentorship
Organized in 1975, the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (SCCLA) provides mutual support for Chinese American and Asian American lawyers, jurists, and law students in Los Angeles and Orange County.
We work to:
advance the professional growth and interests of Chinese and Asian American lawyers, jurists and law students;
improve the access of the Chinese and Asian American communities to legal services; and
promote the interests of the Chinese American and broader Asian American communities.
For more than 40 years, SCCLA has served our community, advocated for greater advancement and opportunities for APA lawyers and law students, and provided a meaningful forum for practicing attorneys to give back to our community and supporters. We would love for you to bring your enthusiasm and great ideas to the Board as we continue this decades-long tradition in the coming year (and years to come).

As we all continue to adapt to the new norm during Covid-19, SCCLA would like to do our part for our community. Through SCCLA Cares, our fundraising campaign, we use 100% of donations to purchase meals from local restaurants or food trucks to feed our community, such as frontline medical responders, the elderly, and others impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Since May, thanks to the numerous generous donations we've received, we've raised funds to feed over 600 individuals.
Donations of any amount are welcome and are not tax-deductible charitable contributions.
Also, for every new SCCLA Member registration, SCCLA will donate one additional meal. For every new SCCLA Lifetime Member registration, SCCLA will donate an additional 10 meals.* There's no better time to join SCCLA! * For new member registrations during the SCCLA Cares campaign only. SCCLA memberships run January 1-December 31.
If you know of a local restaurant or community that would like to participate, we'd love to hear from you. Stay tuned for future fundraisers and updates on our fundraising goals. Thank you for supporting your local eateries and communities.

Thank you and stay safe.
