9th Annual Fall Conference

On Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, AABANY held its 9th annual Fall Conference. For the second year in a row, the conference took place at Fordham Law School. We had 20 programs

running concurrently throughout the morning and afternoon, most of which offered CLE credits, including two programs that offered credits in the new Diversity and Inclusion and Elimination of Bias requirement. 

 
2018 Annual Picnic

On Saturday, August 25, AABANY’s Annual Picnic took place at the Pool Lawn, in the north end of Central Park, by the West 100th Street entrance. It was a beautiful and peaceful sunny day for a picnic, and many AABANY members, with family and friends in tow, got to meet and mingle with each other over banh mi sandwiches and dumplings. 

 
9th Annual Fall Conference

On Tuesday, May 15th, Asia Society and AABANY presented “Here to Stay: The Asian American Immigrant Experience,” at the Asia Society, where four Asian Americans shared their firsthand accounts of their journeys immigrating to America. The speakers included Antonio Xu Liu, a Resource Coordinator at the National Grid, Xiaodeng Chen, a political science student at Brooklyn College, Stephanie Ji Won Park, a community organizer at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), and Tereza Lee, a pianist and immigrant rights activist who is known to have inspired the creation of the DREAM Act.
