About Us

The Asian Pacific American Bar Association Educational Fund (AEF) is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation established by the Asian Pacific American Bar Association (APABA) of the Greater Washington, DC Area in 1993 to engage exclusively in charitable and educational activities.

AEF was created primarily to grant fellowships to law students and to engage in other educational activities related to the legal profession and the Asian Pacific American community. The main purpose of the fellowships is to allow law students to accept summer internship positions with public interest or government organization that benefits either the Asian Pacific American community or the metropolitan Washington, DC community-at-large. Funding for these summer fellowships has come from generous grants from national corporations such as Anheuser-Busch, local law firms and our Annual Benefit Dinner.

Since its inception, AEF is pleased to have expanded its annual activities to include a Mentoring Program that pairs APA law students with experienced attorneys and a Mock Interview Program to help law students prepare for the Fall recruiting season. AEF has also served as the fiscal sponsor for the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APALRC) and a consortium of APA legal scholars who compiled a book on the law of internment and redress.
