Description

Komunidad: A Conference for Pilipinx American Law Students

The Filipino Bar Association of Northern California (FBANC), in collaboration with the Pilipino American Law Societies of the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, the University of California Hastings, College of the Law, the University of San Francisco School of Law, the Golden Gate University School of Law, and the Santa Clara University School of Law, proudly sponsor Komunidad, the inaugural conference for Pilipinx American Law Students.

Centered around the consensus that the Filipinx and Filipinx American communities face distinct, important, and challenging issues relating to representation in law schools, this inaugural conference seeks to promote the education, training, social awareness, community building, and empowerment of Filipinx American law students. This conference aims to connect Filipinx American law students, attorneys, judges, and community leaders. It will also serve as an opportunity for the participants to reflect upon the role they play within the broader APA community and identify ways to strengthen relations with other ethnic subgroups while maintaining a strong sense of self-identity.

This inaugural conference will be the first of its kind in the nation and we are proud to be able to support and uplift our Filipinx and Filipinx American law student communities.

Lunch will be provided, as well as drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and refreshments starting at 3 PM in the sky room of the Hastings Tower.

Business casual and business professional attire are welcome.

Resume Review

For law students interested in having their resume reviewed, please submit your resume to your school's PALS leader no later than 5 PM on Tuesday, February 18, 2019.
