    Upcoming Events

    APALSA's 5th Annual Spring Reception! 

    Thursday, February 27, 2014
    6:30 - 8:30 pm
    Westminster Hall
    University of Maryland Carey School of Law

    Annual APALSA Reception provides a forum to learn about the contributions of the Asian/Pacific American (APA) legal community and to discuss the challenges confronting APA communities. 

    This event helps forge closer ties with the APA legal community in the Baltimore/D.C. area and beyond by bringing together current law students, faculty, practicing attorneys and alumni. The reception also provides an excellent opportunity to connect with other APA legal practitioners.

    We are excited to announce that our Keynote Speaker will be Edward K. Chung, Special Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General (AAG), U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division.

    Tickets are $10 and hors d'oeuvres/Light dinner and beverages will be served. The event and ticket purchase website is located at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/5th-annual-apalsa-spring-reception-tickets-10541795795?ref=ebtn.
