Who We Are

Established in 1992, the Asian American Bar Association of Ohio is the oldest association of Asian Pacific American attorneys in Ohio.  We strive to foster a high level of professional achievement, participation, and responsiveness among our members in legal and law-related fields;  to encourage the active participation of our members in the greater community;  to support the professional growth and advancement of our members; and to promote awareness of the issues and concerns facing the Asian Pacific American legal community and the Asian Pacific American community-at-large.

You are cordially invited to the

AABA Mentorship Kickoff Event

 Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, 6:00 pm

Tinkham Veale Student Center, 11038 Bellflower Road, Cleveland, OH 44106

Interested in participating? We invite all AABA members, students, new attorneys, or seasoned practitioners to sign up to be a mentor or mentee!  Students or new attorneys who choose to participate in this invaluable program will be matched with an experienced attorney mentor, based on areas of interest.  

The value of a mentor cannot be understated and the benefits of participating in a mentorship program are many.  Specifically, this program aims to:

·         Connect law students with practicing attorneys;

·         Foster positive relationships for participants; and

·         Assist with growth and development for mentors and mentees.

 All attorneys and students are encouraged to sign up, as either a mentor or a mentee (or both!).  Mentee and Mentor applications should be sent to Hope Lu at hope.lu@thompsonhine.com and Ruchi Asher at Rasher@cuyahogacounty.us by December 15, 2014.  Feel free to email them for more information.

You must be a member of (or join) AABA Ohio to participate - 2015 membership form is attached for your convenience.  All are welcome!  Law student memberships are $5 through November 30, 2014 if you sign up as a mentee.
