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.


We are proud to announce the conclusion of the SCCLA Cares fundraising campaign. We used 100% of donations to purchase meals from local restaurants or food trucks to feed our community, such as frontline healthcare workers, the elderly, people experiencing housing and food insecurity, and others impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Thanks to the 214 donations we received from 139 donors over the last seven months, we were able to raise $8,256 to provide 1,060 hot meals!

We are so grateful to all our donors, including two who made matching donations. Kenny Chung, Executive Vice-President of Hong Kong Realty Management, Inc., and his family matched $400 in donations and donated $300 in in-kind donations. The API group at the law firm of Holland & Knight LLP, courtesy of Partner and SCCLA Past President Stacey Wang, made a $500 matching donation. In conjunction with a membership drive, SCCLA donated 49 meals attributed to the 9 new Members and 4 new Lifetime Members who joined SCCLA during the fundraising campaign. 

At our first-ever SCCLA Cares Donor Appreciation Event on December 14, representatives from several organization and restaurant partners expressed their community members’ gratitude to the strangers who provided a hot meal and shared the significant challenges they continue to face day-to-day. To learn more and support these 20 incredible SCCLA Cares organizations and restaurants, please click below.

Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising campaign. We couldn’t do this without you. With your support, we hope we can bring back SCCLA Cares in some capacity in the new year.
