    With the situation in Afghanistan continuing to deteriorate and at-risk Afghans evacuating or crossing land borders, the legal community is receiving a high volume of requests for assistance. 

    The International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) will be holding a training on Special Immigrant Visas and other humanitarian pathways that may be available for Afghans this Thursday (8/26) at 4pm-5:30pm EDT.

    Please register by filling out this form

    The training will be recorded and posted to IRAP’s website. 

    *Please note that although filing immigration forms will be helpful in preserving options for Afghan clients in the future, they should understand that filings now are not likely to result in their immediate evacuation. IRAP is pressing the U.S. government for the widest possible evacuation and wants to see as many people who face threats evacuated as possible.

    The 2021-2022 Scholarship Application for the Don H. Liu Scholars Program (“Program”) is now open.  The Program was founded in 2014 by two past presidents of the Asian American Bar Association of New York. The Program seeks to identify and cultivate future Asian American leaders in the legal community to address the single most important reality facing Asian American professionals today — the barrier to advancement.

    This year, the Selection Committee will select up to 3 scholars. Each scholar will be awarded $15,000 each and have access to prominent mentors, including Don H. Liu, Executive Vice President, Chief Legal and Risk Officer of Target Corporation. The Program will also provide assistance in career development, including identifying potential internships.  Details and more information about the Program can be found on our website here: Recipients must be enrolled full-time as a 1L.

    The deadline to apply for the scholarship is November 15, 2021.  Any questions regarding eligibility criteria or the application process can be sent via e-mail to   

    Interested students are also encouraged to join us for a free webinar to learn more about the Program on Thursday, July 29th or Thursday, August 12th, 2021 from 12:30 – 1:30 pm ET.  Please RSVP for one or both sessions here.
