Established in 1993, the Orange County Asian American Bar Association (OCAABA) is proudly celebrating its 23rd year as Orange County’s pan-Asian bar association. OCAABA’s objectives are to: (1) promote professional development and personal growth; (2) foster the exchange of ideas and information between OCAABA and the broader legal profession and community at large; (3) provide a forum for fellowship spanning other civic organizations; (4) promote educational and civic events and programs that enhance the community’s knowledge and understanding of, and thus appreciation for, the legal system and the profession of law; and (5) provide a vehicle for the expression of reasonable opinion arising in the Asian American community on current social, political, economic, legal, or other matters of interest or concern.
OCAABA’s dedication to its mission is embodied in its committees and sections:
OCAABA’s annual installation and awards dinner offers a chance for members and friends to celebrate an evening of camaraderie with a traditional multi-course Chinese banquet. OCAABA held its 23rd Annual Installation Dinner on April 26, 2016, when it installed its 2016-2017 officers and directors; recognized Hon. Jay C. Gandhi, United States Magistrate Judge for the Central District of California, with OCAABA’s Judicial Trailblazer Award; honored Union Bank with OCAABA’s Corporate Service Award; and heard from keynote speaker David Lat, author, legal commentator, and founder and managing editor of Above the Law.
