On behalf of the Harvard Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA), we welcome you to the 19th Annual National Conference on Law and Public Policy! Registration is now open.
The status quo of APAs is one marked by remarkable progress, disappointment, and ongoing challenges. This year’s Conference, “Pushing New Frontiers”, will reflect upon where we have come from and where we stand as individuals and as a community. While celebrating the successes and highlights of APA achievement, we hope that the conference will provide an opportunity to reflect critically on APA leadership and develop a framework for ongoing progress and discussion.
The Conference will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2013, on the Harvard Law School campus and at the Sheraton Commander Hotel.
We are excited to offer a number of panels that span topics from activism, career and leadership opportunities in firms, academia and the judiciary, to Asian Americans in media, journalism, and entertainment. Each panel examines a different facet the Asian American experience, and will showcase the accomplishment of APAs in various fields while presenting diverse perspectives on a wide range of social, political and cultural issues.
Through the panels and a slate of other exciting events – including a welcome reception, networking luncheon, and evening banquet – we hope to provide you with opportunities to make meaningful connections and to spark discussions with peers, friends, colleagues, and mentors.

We look forward to meeting you in February, and in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
