Southern California 
Chinese Lawyers Association

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.

Join the SCCLA Board of Governors

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).

For more information, please visit the online application.


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 will 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 those impacted by the pandemic.

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.

Contact us at with any questions, comments, or feedback.

Thank you and stay safe.
