Each year, the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association at the University of Pennsylvania Law School hosts a conference that engages law students, experienced practitioners, and distinguished speakers from around the country. Last year, we welcomed over 200 guests and nearly thirty speakers to Philadelphia.
With last year’s agenda and theme, “Crescendo: Amplifying the Asian Pacific American Voice,” we examined critical issues specific to the Asian Pacific American legal community that are rarely discussed.
This year, it is my pleasure to invite you to our 15th Annual Conference, Amplify: Promoting Diversity in a Time of Progress. Our goal is to celebrate the opportunities available for diverse lawyers while exploring how to continue advocating for diversity during a time of progress. Our anticipated panel topics will range from the flexibility of the J.D. to Asian Pacific American leaders in law and the importance of diversity in the legal profession. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2016.
We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Philadelphia!
