Help Underrepresented Asian Immigrants
AABA manages the Chinatown Pro Bono Legal Clinic and supports the Asian Human Services legal clinic. We also collaborate with the Indian American and Korean American Bar Associations to train attorneys to provide services in areas of the law that are greatly needed by the local Asian community.

Evaluate Judicial Candidates
AABA investigates, interviews and rates hundreds of candidates for the bench each year through the Alliance of Bar Associations for Judicial Screening.

Mentor Law Students and Young Attorneys
AABA conducts an annual law student forum day to provide an opportunity for law students to learn about many different practice areas and practice settings including law firms, in house counsel, government, public interest and non-traditional careers in the law. Attorneys also provide one-on-one counseling and resume review to students.
