Asian Pacific American Law Journal

APALJ LogoMission: The Asian Pacific American Law Journal (APALJ) focuses exclusively on the legal, social and political issues affecting Asian Pacific American communities. APALJ plays an important role by providing a forum for legal scholars, practitioners and students to communicate about emerging concerns and by disseminating these writings to the general population. We work hard to reach out to the community and initiate discourse on APA issues. APALJ members are involved in the entire journal publication process, including selection, substantive editing and cite-checking of all articles and comments. In addition to publishing law journals, APALJ hosts symposia and live speaker series.
