SABABC is committed to promoting the professional development of the South Asian legal community through networking, advocacy and mentoring. SABABC hosts panels, continuing legal education courses, and workshops on career development, social justice issues, and current events.
SABABC aims to remove any barriers South Asian students may face in pursuing a career in the legal profession and those faced by the South Asian community in accessing justice and educational programs in the community.
We invite all lawyers, paralegals, law students and judges to please join SABABC in its commitment to achieving these goals.
SABABC’s Executive and Board is made up of volunteers who take away time from their practices, families, and social lives to contribute to a greater cause. There is a lot of work to be done in the profession and in the community at large.
