Featured Presentation: “Portrait Project 2.0: Asian Americans in the Law” with:
- Hon. Goodwin Liu, ABF Affiliated Scholar | California Supreme Court
- Professor Ajay K. Mehrotra, ABF Research Professor | Professor of Law, Northwestern University
Asian Americans are a growing presence in all sectors of the legal profession. They work in Big Law and in smaller firms and solo practice, and as government attorneys, corporate counsel, prosecutors, public defenders, judges, and more. But they fall short in attaining leadership positions and have the highest attrition rates from major law firms. This ABF research project explores the empirical challenges and opportunities faced by Asian Americans in the legal profession. During this NY Fellows presentation, the co-Principal Investigators of this project (Hon. Goodwin Liu and ABF Research Professor/Former Executive Director, Ajay K. Mehrotra) will discuss the overall aims of this project and a recently updated report chronicling Asian American identity and action during challenging times.
Lunch Available at 12:00 p.m.
Presentation to commence at 12:30 p.m.
