Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) is dedicated to the professional development of Asian/Pacific-American lawyers and law students in the Baltimore-Washington area.
To this end, APALSA seeks to address the concerns and needs of students with Asian/Pacific-American backgrounds through mutual support and by providing its members with a forum to discuss Asian/Pacific-American issues as well as social and political issues of immediate importance.
Furthermore, the Maryland chapter of APALSA maintains contact with the Asian/Pacific-American legal community through its national sponsor NAPALSA, and the District of Columbia chapter of the National Asian/Pacific-American Bar Association.
