AALJ's 20th Anniversary Dinner

posted March 25, 2013

Dear AALJ Alumnus, Members, and Undergraduate Fellows,

My name is Joseph Bui. I have the privilege of serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the Asian American Law Journal at Berkeley Law as we prepare to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Today, AALJ remains one of only two law journals in the country dedicated to addressing legal and policy issues relevant to the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Our past lectures, symposia, and scholarship have addressed issues such as hate crimes and civil liberties post-9/11, environmental racism in Richmond, and the deportation of Southeast Asian refugees. This year's groundbreaking four-day symposium, "Inter(sex)ionality: Asian Voices in Queer Migration," asked participants to consider how our understanding of contemporary legal and political issues changes when we simultaneously consider race, gender, sexuality, and immigration status.

I am writing to invite you to join us on Friday, April 26 at 6:30 pm at King Yen (2995 College Ave Berkeley, CA 94705) to help us celebrate 20 years of Asian American jurisprudence. We have asked Bill Lann Lee to deliver the key note address. His speech will touch upon the continuing importance of Asian American jurisprudence even after the nation elected an African-American president, born in Hawaii, and raised in Indonesia. Mr. Lee's impressive career includes serving as the nation's top civil rights litigator, a staff attorney at AALDEF, the head of the NAACP's regional office in Los Angeles, and as a partner at Lieff Cabreser. He is presently a named partner at Lewis, Feinberg, Lee, Renaker, and Jackson, one of the nation's top plaintiff-side firms.

Please RSVP to submissions.aalj@gmail.com by Friday, April 12. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. A request for MCLE credit is pending.
