The Pipeline Committee serves as a liaison between local law students and OCAABA’s attorney and judicial members in order to provide law students with advice about coursework, school/work-life balance, and insights into the legal profession and career decisions.
More specifically, each school year, the Pipeline Committee offers a formal Mentorship Program in which law student participants are matched with an experienced OCAABA attorney or judicial member. Throughout the school year, mentors provide law students with guidance and advice on the legal profession. The Pipeline Committee assists in the development of the mentoring relationship by organizing events for participants in the Mentorship Program. Additional details about the Mentorship Program are provided on the Law Student page.
The Pipeline Committee also organizes or participates in career nights, speed networking events, resume workshops, speaker panels, receptions, social mixers, and other events for the benefit of local law students and OCAABA attorney and judicial members.
The Pipeline Committee partners with the Asian Pacific American Law Students Associations of four local law schools (Chapman, UCI, Western State, and Whittier) to elect a Student Liaison each year from each school to work with OCAABA on developing and organizing events for the benefit of local law students and OCAABA members.
