On Friday, September 20, AABANY hosted an In House Counsel/ Partner’s Cocktail Reception and Dinner to raise funds to support the Asian American Law Fund of NY (AALFNY) which provides scholarships to minority law students.
We had many notables in attendance including our ardent supporters Don Liu, Sandra Leung and Parkin Lee. We were also delighted to have among us, a rising author and lawyer, Helen Wan, who along with her publisher MacMillan and St. Martin’s Press generously donated signed copies of her book, The Partner Track.
In addition, AABANY’s Career Placement Committee kicked off to a great start with many general counsels committing to support its mission to increase the numbers of APAs in the profession.
Thanks to the 49 senior in house lawyers, including 16 general counsels, from over 40 different corporations and 44 partners from 35 different law firms who attended, we raised approximately $12,000 for AALFNY. We thank all those who attended and donated to the scholarship fund to make it a huge success!
