APALSA Conference Features Author & Law Scholar

The Asian and Pacific-American Law Students Association (APALSA) presented its annual conference at the Law School in March. Taking as its theme “The Places We’ve Been … The Places We’ll Go: The Evolution of Asian American Lawyers and Their Visions for the Future,” the conference featured academics and practitioners in panel discussions over two days. Panelists included Bill Lann Lee, Former Assistant Attorney General; Glen Magpantay of AALDEF; Paul Igasaki, Vice Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; the Honorable Ida Chen; Jan Ting, Professor at Temple University; David Oh, sole practitioner in Philadelphia; and the Honorable Denny Chin of the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York. Frank Wu, Assistant Professor of Law at Howard University, was also a panelist and presented his popular book Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White (2001). The conference was organized in collaboration with several APALSA groups in the Mid-Atlantic region.


Anecdotally at least, the first year of a law student’s life is considered the most challenging due in large part to the demands and culture of legal education. For one day in the Fall students are buoyed by the support of their loved ones who sample a day in their lives. In November the Law School sponsored the annual Parents and Partners Day during which they were welcomed to attend classes in Torts or Criminal Law, tour the Law School complex, attend orientation with the Dean, and dine with the president of the Law Alumni Society. Parents and Partners Day 2002 will take place on November 21st.
