Our Story

The Orange County Asian American Bar Association (“OCAABA”) was officially formed in December of 1993. Through our programs and events, we foster professional development of our members, serve as mentors to local law students, promote diversity in the private and public sectors, volunteer for legal clinics for low income and disadvantaged communities and support causes which affect and advance the needs of Asian Pacific Americans and the public at-large. Our committees organize events throughout the year and provide opportunities for our members to become more involved in OCAABA and our local communities.

Our organizational objectives are:

  • To promote professional development and personal growth of its members;
  • To foster the exchange of ideas and information between OCAABA and other participants of the legal profession and community at large;
  • To provide a forum for fellowship among OCAABA members, and with other civic organizations;
  • To promote educational and civic events and programs which would enhance the community’s knowledge and understanding, and thus appreciation for the legal system and the profession of law; and
  • To provide a vehicle and forum for the expression of reasonable opinion arising in the Asian Pacific American community on current social, political, economic, legal or other matters of event or concern.
