Organized in 1975, the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (SCCLA) works to advance the professional growth and interests of Chinese American and Asian American lawyers, jurists and law students; improve access to legal services to those in need; and promote the interests of the Chinese American and broader Asian American communities.

The Board of Governors of SCCLA consists of 21 members, 5 of whom also serve as executive officers. The Board ensures that SCCLA continues to fulfill its mission while operating in a responsible and sustainable fashion.

SCCLA selects our board members from qualified attorneys based in the Greater Los Angeles Area. SCCLA aims to maintain a diverse board with members who practice across a broad range of substantive legal areas and settings. The SCCLA Board currently includes members who work in firms of all sizes, government agencies, and public interest organizations, and who practice in areas including plaintiff-side and defense-side civil litigation, business transactions, criminal prosecution and defense, employment law, intellectual property, and family law.

SCCLA invites applications from highly qualified attorneys who are self-starters and passionate believers in the mission of SCCLA.

Each SCCLA board member is required to:

  • be a member of good standing of a state bar;
  • be a current, paid member of SCCLA;
  • pay annual board member dues and regular member dues;
  • attend at least 10 monthly board meetings in person per year, including the 2023 Retreat, which is scheduled for a Saturday in January 2023;
