JABA: On Engaging Students and Community

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Well, it (JABA-Japanese American Bar Association) certainly has gotten a lot bigger. And so many young people (lawyers) are—the involvement with law students, which is wonderful. I think there were fewer JA law students in those days to have…so that we didn’t really do that kind of outreach. I think that the things that are being done in terms of community involvement and community education are absolutely wonderful, especially because access to legal services is so…so difficult and expensive. I would certainly encourage more of that kind of endeavor from members of the bar. I know that JABA does a lot of that, and I think that’s really wonderful.
