Every year the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) selects a small group of attorneys to receive the Best Lawyers Under 40 Award (“BU40”). The BU40 Awards recognize talented individuals in the Asian Pacific American (APA) legal community under the age of 40 who have achieved prominence and distinction in their respective fields while demonstrating a strong commitment to the community at relatively early stages in their careers.
NITA congratulates the 21 “BU40″ for 2014. The 2014 class continues the BU40 legacy of excellence and leadership in both the legal and APA communities. Their accomplishments include: founding their own law firms, trying and winning major cases, representing Fortune 100 companies, combatting human trafficking, and advocating to protect the civil rights of APAs.
NITA, for NAPABA members, is presenting a session entitled “Convergence of Bias and Reason: How Not to Ignore Implicit Bias in the Courtroom” at the 2014 NAPABA Convention in Scottsdale (sign-up for the Friday, Novemer 7th 9:15 am session). We hope then to congratulate these 21 Awardees in person:
See you in Scottsdale November 7 for NAPABA!
