What ABAS Is

ABAS is the Asian/Pacific Bar Association of Sacramento, formed in 1981 to promote and protect the interests of Asian and Pacific Islander (API) attorneys and the API communities in the greater Sacramento area. ABAS members include attorneys working in federal, state, and local government, in private practice, as in-house counsel, and in the non-profit sector, in addition to judges, law students and law school faculty, and non-attorney members.

ABAS is also a member association of both the California Asian Pacific American Bar Association (Cal-APABA), the statewide umbrella organization for Asian Pacific American lawyers’ associations, and the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). ABAS members have served in leadership roles in both organizations. ABAS is certified by the State Bar of California and is an affiliate member organization of the Sacramento County Bar Association.

What ABAS Does

The objective of ABAS is to foster the exchange of ideas and promote the professional growth of its members; to provide an opportunity for fellowship among ABAS members; to provide service to the general and local community; to develop and encourage cooperation with other organizations of minority attorneys; and to provide a vehicle and forum for the unified expression of opinions and positions on current social, political, economic, legal, or other matters or events of concern.

Plans for the Future

ABAS will be hosting a number of events this year, including an array of educational programs and mixers. All are welcome.
