NYLJ Distinguished Leaders 2017: Andrew T. Hahn Sr.
Congratulations to Andy Hahn, Partner, Duane Morris, and former AABANY, KALAGNY and NAPABA President, on being named one of the New York Law Journal’s Distinguished Leaders of 2017.
Q: What does it mean to be a leader?
A: Being an effective leader means self-sacrifice. It means that the leader places the needs of his or her constituents and/or organization over personal, self-interest. While the leader can delegate duties and responsibilities, he or she must also lead by example. This will entail the expenditure of much time and effort for the greater good. A good leader also must possess wisdom and judgment to do the right thing.

Andy Hahn Discusses Biases, Barriers, and the Bamboo Ceiling within the Asian American Legal Community
In an interview with Bloomberg last week, former AABANY President Andy Hahn examined the obstacles that face Asian Americans in the law, from high attrition rates and underrepresentation to pervasive stereotypes and biases. On the heels of Justice Goodwin Liu’s study, “A Portrait of Asian Americans in the Law,” the interview explored Andy Hahn’s own experiences, from his time as an army lawyer to his tenures as president of both AABANY and NAPABA, and how those roles have made Andy intimately familiar with the challenges of Asian Americans in the law. Despite large growth since the 1990s, the Asian American legal community faces gross underrepresentation today, from clerkships and judgeships to partner and management roles. This has led Andy to his own “crusade” to galvanize Asian Americans into participating in the law. Follow the link in the title to read the full article published in Bloomberg Law.
Andy’s work as a leader in the legal profession has not gone unnoticed, as the New York Law Journal recently honored him with the 2017 Distinguished Leadership Award. To read the press release congratulating him for this achievement, click here.
