One of the oldest and largest South Asian bar associations in the country, the South Asian Bar Association of Southern California serves Los Angeles and Orange counties and strives to promote the professional development of South Asian lawyers and law students, educate the community about legal issues, and expand and enhance business and professional opportunities for South Asians. The association has created a non-profit Public Interest Foundation staffed exclusively by volunteers, and awarded grants to numerous agencies and law students who provided services to our local community. SABA-SC has also created a successful Mentor-Mentee Program to support law students and young lawyers, as well as a Judicial Evaluation Committee to help attorneys seeking our support with the judicial appointment process.
