SAN FRANCISCO – Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach (API Legal Outreach) will honor the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area (AABA) Pro Bono Clinics at the annual API Legal Outreach gala on October 20, 2017 in San Francisco, California.
The AABA Community Services Committee and API Legal Outreach operate two pro bono legal clinics each month in Oakland and San Francisco with the help of volunteer attorneys and law students. Founded in 2007, the AABA Clinics’ mission is to ensure that low-income Bay Area residents, including mono-lingual immigrants, have access to free legal information and assistance in a number of areas, including immigration, family law, housing and more.
Since the AABA Pro Bono Clinics were launched in 2007, hundreds of attorneys and law students have provided thousands of clients with legal assistance they otherwise would not have been able to afford. In the last two years alone, the AABA Clinics have served over 375 residents in the community.
“We are honored to be recognized by API Legal Outreach,” said Miriam Kim, president of AABA. “Through the continued efforts of our Community Services Committee, volunteers, and partners like API Legal Outreach, AABA has been providing meaningful assistance to our community for the last 10 years. It is humbling to be part of this important endeavor.”
