Who we are

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.
