Description

The Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California (VABANC) cordially invites you to attend our 19th Annual Scholarship Dinner, celebrating VABANC’s commitment to cultivating relationships between Vietnamese American judges, attorneys, law students, and the Vietnamese American communities in Northern California.

Proceeds will support scholarships for law students who have demonstrated a commitment to serving the Vietnamese American community and other underserved communities. Proceeds will also support programs such as VABANC’s legal clinics in San Jose and Oakland, and efforts to increase diversity in the legal profession. Last year’s dinner, organized jointly with the National Conference of Vietnamese American Attorneys, was attended by over 240 guests, including 9 judges.
