Welcome to Suffolk Law APALSA!

2016 Greater Boston APALSA Conference

The Greater Boston APALSA Conference celebrates ethnic diversity in he legal world. The Conference hopes to inspire a new level of appreciation for a stronger connection within the larger APA community with the APALSA groups of Boston College, Boston University, Suffolk University, New England Law, and Northeastern University. 

The alumni and students in the Conference were engaged and connected with one another. It has also strengthened the relationship between law schools and the legal community.

NAPABA/AALAM Event


 "I am pleased to report to you that five Suffolk Law students attended the 3-day conference this past Friday to Sunday.  They made a proud Suffolk presence. They told me they had a fantastic learning experience at the conference.  They met several of our alumni (you may recognize them in the photos as your past students) and new acquaintances from various law firms, many of whom were event sponsors and organizers. I joined them at the banquet and introduced them to several of the people I knew, including Paul Lee.  He spoke very highly of you when chatting with our students. "


Here's a blog entry from Jolethia Rogers, an amazing member of APALSA, who has dedicated to our organization for the past three years. 

My name is Jolethia Rogers and I am a third year law student at Suffolk. I currently serve as the Co-Diversity Chair on the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA).

 

On October 3, 2015 I had the opportunity to go to an AMAZING conference. The Northeast Regional NAPABA conference was co-hosted by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) and the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts (AALAM). The theme for the conference was “Shake it Up” and boy did they! The conference was really about talking about the issues impacting Asian Pacific Americans in the legal community and getting the conversation started, in the hopes of making a positive impact. There were different topics on which panelists spoke and the panels themselves were very interactive for those who attended to be able to actively participate.

 

OK, so, full disclosure, I’m not Asian American, or Asian for that matter. Having announced that disclosure, I still got SO much out of this experience. It’s amazing how many issues cross cultures and races. As a student, I learned substantive law about Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) as well as practical matters about what Partners and General Counsels look for in promoting individuals. The people I met were/are absolutely amazing. I feel like people are eager to help and talk to you once you let them know you’re a student searching for advice and guidance. I got some business cards and plan on following up with them. If you can’t tell, I had an absolutely amazing time, but hey, that’s what happens when you’re at an APALSA event.
