APALSA is the largest student-run organization at Penn Law. As an academic, cultural, and social group, APALSA invests in the professional and personal development of its members. We also hope to make strong contributions to the Penn Law, APA, and larger legal communities.
Every year, APALSA’s conference in February attracts hundreds of law students from across the country. It draws professors, lawyers, jurists, and entrepreneurs from the top of their fields to discuss issues of Asian America and the law. To conclude the day’s events, the employer reception and dinner banquet allow Penn Law students and the nation’s top firms to cultivate new and lasting professional relationships.
The Asian American experience is a long and complicated, rich and nuanced narrative. It is one of struggle, misunderstanding, and isolation, as well as triumph, pride, and community. As a group, APALSA strives to shape Asian America in the legal field by preparing its members for well-rounded and successful legal careers.
APALSA welcomes any and all students with an interest in Asian American issues.
