Watch “Someone Else” at CineVision’s 38th Annual Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF)!

A tale of two Korean American cousins. A shy young law student, hungry
for a more vivid, risk-taking existence, visits his playboy cousin in
New York City. In his quest to emulate his cousin, the law student sheds
his old identity and takes a leap into the unknown, where risk,
adventure, and a chance at love await.

“Someone Else” will be shown on July 24 at 9 pm at Village East Cinema.

During our Annual AABANY/AALFNY Summer Reception on July 20, we celebrated the opportunities afforded to diverse law students in the Joint Minority Bar Judicial Internship Program (JMB JIP), the Asian American Law Fund of New York’s Community Scholarship Award Recipient Kamille Go, and the accomplishments of NYC Commissioner of Human Rights Carmelyn Malalis. We had over 170 attorneys, judges, and law students registered to attend. 

JMB JIP is a collaborative effort between AABANY, AALFNY, the Asian American Judges Association of New York, Association of Judges of Hispanic Heritage, Metropolitan Black Bar Association, the New York Women’s Bar Association Foundation, Inc., the Puerto Rican Bar Association, and the South Asian Bar Association of New York to offer law students with a strong commitment to diversity to enhance and complement their legal education as summer judicial interns in New York metropolitan area courthouses. 

This reception not only offered the chance to celebrate but to connect in a welcome environment for mentorship and guidance. We thank the many law firms who sponsored this program and made it possible, including the evening’s host for the night, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
