About Us

APALSA is a political, academic, community service, and social group dedicated to fostering a supportive atmosphere for Asian Pacific American students at Harvard Law School. APALSA strives to promote a greater understanding of Asian Pacific American issues and culture, serve as a vehicle for Asian Pacific American political activity, and provide a social and academic network for Asian Pacific Americans and the Harvard Law School community.

Every year, APALSA hosts the National Asian Pacific American Conference on Law and Public Policy, which invites prominent jurists, public interest advocates, corporate partners, and government policymakers to participate in panels and meet with law school students from around the country. The conference attracts hundreds of participants, and serves as a forum for discussing pressing political, cultural, and social issues.
