    Law Students

    Law students are welcome to attend most SCCLA events free of charge! Check our website for specific event registration details. There is no need for current law students to become members, as membership is reserved for attorneys admitted to the bar. Sign up for our newsletters at, “like” our official Facebook page, and follow us on LinkedIn and Instagram in order to stay informed of our latest events. While some events are closed to law students, student volunteers are generally welcome, so contact us at to volunteer.

    Provisionally Licensed Lawyers

    Under the California Supreme Court’s administrative order approving New Rule 9.49 issued on October 22, 2020, the provisional licensure program allows eligible 2020 law school graduates to practice law as provisionally licensed lawyers under the supervision of fully licensed lawyers who meet the requirements of the rule and who agree to assume professional responsibility over the work of the provisionally licensed lawyers. The program will terminate June 1, 2022 unless extended by the Court.

    The purpose of the program is to allow provisionally licensed lawyers to engage in all of the same activities that a fully licensed lawyer is permitted to engage in, under their supervising lawyer's supervision and subject to certain restrictions, and to expand access to justice. In furtherance of this program’s objective of inclusion of provisionally licensed lawyers, the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association now allows provisionally licensed lawyers to register as regular members of our organization.

    Provisionally licensed lawyers who are members of the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association shall be entitled to the same benefits as attorney members.
