Portrait Project 2.0 Policy Brief: Identity and Action in Challenging Times


An American Bar Foundation Report

Five years ago, “A Portrait of Asian Americans in the Law” offered a systematic account of Asian Americans in the legal profession. The report showed that, within the span of a generation, Asian Americans have become a visible presence across all sectors of the legal profession but are significantly underrepresented in the leadership of law firms, government, and academia. the ABF has collaborated with the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, and Yale Law School to present “A Portrait of Asian Americans in the Law 2.0.” This five year update offers fresh insights into career advancement and political participation against the backdrop of a rise in anti-Asian hate.
